Marissa Nadler has shared the video today for her song “All The Colors Of The Dark.” The song is off her new album Strangers, which is out May 20th on Sacred Bones. The poignant and painstaingly well put together lack-and-white video was filmed and animated by Nadler herself.

Nadler says of the video: ““With All the Colors of the Dark I wanted to marry my love for the moving image with the song in a compelling visual that pulsated with the same rhythm. I’ve been inspired by the beautiful phantasmagoric worlds created by Svankmejer and Francesca Woodman, The Brothers Quay, among others. In the video, everyday objects move on their own, representing a lingering presence in my life. In both the song and video that shadowing presence could be interpreted as a memory or as a true apparition, and I’ll leave it up to interpretation. Little by little, throughout the course of the song and video, the leaves and vines are pushed back into the drawers as time slowly creeps by. I rearrange the photos on the wall that have inexplicably moved, and among other things, shut the windows and blinds that keep opening by themselves. With each spin of the trees, seasons pass, and I pace around the house. With the death of the figure at the end of the video, that presence is vaporized.”

Strangers is Nadler’s seventh full-length album. She worked again with the producer of her last album July, Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Black Mountain). Nadler has also announced tour dates with Black Mountain in April. You can watch the video and find tour dates below.
