Published Jan 06, 2021The Weather Station is gearing up to release her new album Ignorance, and she's getting the rest of us ready by sharing the new single "Atlantic," which arrives alongside a video.
As you'll see, the clip features Tamara Lindeman in a mirror suit as "she aimed to capture the intensity of the band in a traditional music video performance video, but in such a way that it subverted the form in mysterious ways," according to a press release.
In a statement, Lindeman herself said the following:
Trying to capture something of the slipping feeling I think we all feel, the feeling of dread, even in beautiful moments, even when you're a little drunk on a sea cliff watching the sun go down while seabirds fly around you; that slipping feeling is still there, that feeling of dread, of knowing that everything you see is in peril. I feel like I spend half my life working on trying to stay positive. My whole generation does. But if you spend any time at all reading about the climate situation circa now, positivity and lightness are not fully available to you anymore; you have to find new ways to exist and to see, even just to watch the sunset. I tried to make the band just go crazy on this one, and they did. This is one where the music really makes me see the place in my mind; the flute and the guitar chasing each other, wheeling around like birds, the drums cliff like in their straightness; I love the band on this one.
Watch the video for "Atlantic" below. The song follows the previously shared album tracks "Robber" and "Tried to Tell You."
Ignorance arrives February 5 through Next Door Records/Fat Possum.
