VIDEO: Julia Holter - "Our Sorrows"

Julia Holter has quite a number of fans within the YPOIW team (our discussion may have tipped you off), so of course we have to mention her brand new video for the song "Our Sorrows" off her excellent Ekstasis LP.

The dreamlike pop song is supported by appropriately surreal images of Holter playing with a bowl of water and a purple thread weaving its way across L.A. The video was directed by Naomi Yang (of the band Galaxie 500, dontcha know), and I can't help but suspect that the myth of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth was on the creators' minds during this shoot. Only instead of the thread leading Holter out of the maze as with Theseus, she seems to trap herself within the thread. Or something like that.

Watch the video and decide for yourself.
