Published Jul 26, 2016Veda Hille released her latest album Love Waves this spring, and now she's ready to unveil the fresh new visuals for that record's "Charismatic M.F."
The video was directed by the brother and sister duo of Kate Henderson and David Henderson-Hean, and accompanies the multi-meaning song. To Hille, the song is about her marriage, but upon his first listen, Henderson-Hean interpreted it as a a reaction to the overwhelming and constant onslaught of information in the modern world.
"I feel like the video David and Kate made holds both these meanings, which is fantastic," Hille tells Exclaim! "That's why songs get sent out into the world, instead of just getting played in my room over and over. So they can get bigger or smaller or be more about tigers or whatever. Having artists respond to my music is like a present I buy myself. I'm still unwrapping this ridiculous elegant surprise."
The final video pieces together footage from Rick Prelinger's Prelinger Archive, showing off an array of scenes from the more mundane everyday suburban life to a man dancing with a tiger to charmingly outdated ads for obsolete technology.
