Published Jan 11, 2016Winnipeg-based singer-songwriter Jaymie Friesen has been making music under the name Well Sister for more than a year now, and her latest release arrived as an EP titled Sacred Sites in late 2015. Now, Exclaim! has your first look at the brand new video for the title track.
Wistful and whimsical, the song is a gentle, melancholic folk number that has been paired with visuals from director Tyler Funk. The footage was shot at a quarry outside Friesen's hometown of Steinbach, MB, providing a stunning backdrop to simple yet arresting shots of Friesen.
Ever emotive as she takes scissors to her long, flowing locks, Friesen is entrancing as she chops off her hair and connects with the earth around her — toying with opposing themes of mourning and healing, chaos and creation. Watch the stunning video premiere of "Sacred Sites" in the player below.
