The operatic “Some Winters” was our second taste of Weyes Blood’s upcoming The Innocents, and now it’s the project’s first music video. Director Winston H Case sets Natalie Merens in an old-fashioned home and mostly in the woods, where she kicks it with her dog, builds a campfire, and plays piano dramatically. Not much happens, but Merens has an arresting charisma, and Case conjures an atmosphere that slides between tranquility and foreboding. People throw around the word “haunting” a lot these days, but this one really deserves that descriptor. It’s a truly beautiful video. Watch it below.
The Innocents is out 10/21 on Mexican Summer.
