Wolf Parade Head to the Stars in “Yulia”

Bravely Gone Where No Rocker Has Gone Before

In the clip for new single “Yulia” Canadian rockers Wolf Parade blast into outerspace, Soviet style. Explains director Scott Coffey, “During the Cold War at the beginning of the Space Age, the Soviet Union was rumored to have two space programs – one a public program, the other a secret ‘black’ one, in which dangerous and sometimes downright suicidal missions were attempted. Cosmonauts would be shot into orbit without the means or resources to get them home, stranded in an expanding orbit around earth, slowly pulling away, frozen in space for eternity. I wanted to create a kind of formal and slightly nostalgic vibe. At the same time, I wanted it to feel untethered to an exact era — not specifically in the past.”
