EMA – “Satellites” Video

The majestic, gothic, epically tense “Satellites” is the first single from The Future’s Void, former Gowns leader Erika M. Anderson’s second album as EMA. The LP follows the heart-shattering 2011 solo debut Past Life Martyred Saints, and Anderson co-produced it herself with Leif Shackelford, her violinist, who’s also a DIY dance producer in Portland. The album is set to arrive this spring, and now Anderson and Shackleford, together, have directed a video for “Satellites.” The clip works as a sort of basement-punk take on low-budget ’80s sci-fi, and it makes great use of Anderson’s absolutely magnetic on-camera presence. Watch it and check out the tracklist for The Future’s Void below.
