Given the surreal film noir feeling of Julia Holter’s videos for In The Green Wild and This Is A True Heart, it makes sense that her most recent Loud City Song visual is equally cinematic. Based on a concept by Nite Jewel’s Ramona Gonzalez, the video for Horns Surrounding Me is part Susperia, part North By Northwest, and part Lord Of The Rings with a dash of Fire Walk With Me thrown in.
The clip features Holter walking through dimly lit churches and theaters, choosing crime over romance, and carrying what looks like a piece of a robin’s egg. It’s less plot-driven and more cerebral than past Holter videos, but the track’s pulsing beats and brass creates a tension that’s appropriately soundtrack-y. Check it out below.
