‘In the Same Room’, a highlight from Julia Holter’s sometimes crushingly good new album, Ekstatis, now has a video.
In the words of director Hilary Walsh, “When I first heard to Julia’s ‘In The Same Room,’ I felt an inherent response to portray the song through a day dream sequence. To convey the subconscious day dream wandering and create a surreal juxtaposition, we shot on Bolex, Super 8, and digital formats, and used sun-drenched landscapes mixed with interior shots.
“Wyatt, the editor, layered the files to give dimensional qualities to the interior shots. The song is about trying to remember someone or specifically place someone’s face. The layering of film formats, color themes, and shoot environments sequences represents the flooding of a lifetime of memories.”
The end result is pretty gorgeous. If you haven’t checked Holter’s incredibly special FACT mix from this Monday, then you can download it here.
