Feist "Graveyard" (video)
Published Nov 01, 2012In a great bit of timing, Feist has made this week all that more spooky by releasing a video for "Graveyard," off her Polaris Music Prize-winning Metals.
The clip is an entirely black and white affair, featuring Feist and co. doing their thing as the camera captures them long-shot style.
In a statement [via Pitchfork], here's what Feist had to say about the clip:
I'm not talking about the Graveyard as a location, but of the entangled thoughts you get when visiting a graveyard. Usually you're there to visit someone who's died, and you think in broad terms about what they've become and your own mortality and about what time means. We're alone in the field, always at a distance. And people appear and disappear from your life.
Grief comes in the form of much larger thoughts; it's more philosophical and it leads to a confused state of mind. You don't get those thoughts from checking your emails! It's a pullback from details and its grand and isolating.
