Weyes Blood: Movies

Movies is the third single surfacing off Titanic Rising, the anticipated new album by contemporary folk songstress, Weyes Blood, following the impressive Everyday and Andromeda. Charmingly harmonious, psychedelically grand and overall imposing as expected, the bewitching six-minute song comes with a stunning video directed by Natalie Mering herself.

"We are enamored with Movies," states the artist. "Our generation is the most cinematically saturated of all time. Videotapes, DVD’s, streaming… Spielberg…all of it has thrust us into an endless loop of consumption. They provide formative experiences as children, standing larger than life before our fragile adolescent minds. I wanted to take a look into the emotionally manipulative powers of Movies – how have Movies succeeded in telling the myths of our time? How have they failed (miserably)? What is the consequent effect on a society of beings looking for themselves in the myths on the screen? It’s safe to say that they have failed us, but I can’t help it…I love Movies."

Titanic Rising comes out April 5th, 2019 on the legendary Sub Pop Records.
