WATCH: Julia Holter – ‘In The Same Room’

Watch the video for another track from Julia Holter's upcoming Ekstasis album

We posted the video for a song from Julia Holter’s upcoming Ekstasis album, ‘Für Felix’, earlier this week. Today the video for another of the album’s tracks, ‘In The Same Room’, has emerged online. You can watch it below. The song is a rather beautiful, very spacious thing, with Holter’s sing-song chatter flitting airily across a backdrop of scattered keys and metronomic percussion.

"When I first heard Julia’s ‘In The Same Room’, I felt an inherent response to portray the song through a day dream sequence," said director Hilary Walsh in a statement accompanying the video. "To convey the subconscious day dream wandering and create a surreal juxtaposition, we shot on Bolex, Super 8, and digital formats, and used sun-drenched landscapes mixed with interior shots. Wyatt, the editor, layered the files to give dimensional qualities to the interior shots. The song is about trying to remember someone or specifically place someone’s face. The layering of film formats, color themes, and shoot environments sequences represents the flooding of a lifetime of memories."
