The self-directed video for “Curtains” is kicking off the artist’s month-long European tour.
One of the most hauntingly beautiful and strange releases from 2018 has been Eartheater‘s IRISIRI on Pan. New York-based musician Alexandra Drewchin’s unique fusing of classical composition and off-kilter songcraft makes the LP one of the strangest and ethereal listens you’re likely to stumble across this year.
Now, Eartheater is bringing her musical talents on the road for a massive European tour that will take her from Lisbon to Unsound Festival in Krakow to Berghain in Berlin. To celebrate the tour, Drewchin has just dropped a new self-directed video for the track “Curtains”.
“Curtains” is marked by an intertwining call and response between snippets of rave beats and mournful harp cadences, which effortlessly pulls the listener in and out of two different listening spaces and temporalities. The video adds to the dense, dream-like state of the track, adding an extra visual element to Eartheater’s strange musical vision.
Watch the video above and grip the record over at the PAN site here. See Eartheater at a venue near you by checking out her tour dates below.
