Watch Julia Holter’s new video for “World” (playing World Cafe Live on 7/13)
In advance of her forthcoming For Loud City Song LP, Julia Holter has shared a new video for lead single “World.” The video is a beautiful pairing of sped-up montage footage showing Holter walking through her hometown of Los Angeles and the hushed, barely-there musings of the musician. Visually, it’s like an experimental film that was discovered with missing pieces. It feels like a narrative, but parts of the story aren’t there and it never resolves, leaving the viewer feeling unsettled. That feeling becomes even more unsettling when Holter leaves us with the question “How can I escape you?”. For Loud City Song will be released through Domino Records on August 19th. Julia Holter will be in town on July 11th with Jessica Pratt at World Cafe Live upstairs; tickets and information can be found here. Watch the new video for “World” below.
