Billie Marten is 16-year-old folk prodigy from England. I fell hard for her early enormous track “Heavy Weather” and have been following closely since. “Hope is a distance unreached,” she sings on newer, delicate track “Bird,” and that’s probably the best summary of what hope actually feels like that I’ve ever heard. Now she’s shared an absolutely stunning video to accompany the song. It was shot in the Buttermere, Lake District in England, directed by Franklyn Banks and produced by Tom King. It follows Marten and a mystery protagonist through the gorgeous British countryside and into some mythical behaviors. Watch below.
Marten’s As Long As EP is out 11/13 via Chess Club Records.
