Marissa Nadler – “Dead City Emily” Video

Dead City Emily” was the first thing we heard from Marissa Nadler’s forthcoming July, and now it’s the first thing we see. Directors Derrick Belcham and Emily Terndrup concocted shadowy visuals to match Nadler’s eerie balladry, turning her and Austin Tyson loose on a modern dance routine that evokes what Snoop Dogg might call sensual seduction. It reminds me of Ghost a little bit, though I don’t think either character is supposed to be dead. Watch below.

July is out 2/4 via Sacred Bones.
