LA-based experimental pop auteur Julia Holter had an incredible 2015. Her beautiful offering Have You In My Wilderness cracked our list of the best albums of 2015, and we received a lot of insight on the creation of that album when we spoke to Holter. It makes sense to linger on such a wondrous project for a while, so in her first act of the new year, she revisits one of the many standouts from the album.
“Everytime Boots” is a wandering, artful song with captivating storytelling and instrumentation that magnifies the feelings the lyrics evokes splendidly. Ramona Gonzalez’s matching clip is a more literal take with Holter’s avant-garde sensibilities laced throughout. A cowboy falls for a a cowgirl in a 99 cent store as Holter follows without his knowledge. She throws a wrench in his romantic pursuits as the third wheel and he eventually returns to his bedroom alone to sadly eat a sandwich. The subtlety of Holter’s audacious, off-kilter songs is a great underlying element in the video. Watch below.
Have You In My Wilderness is out now on Domino.
