Photographer and musician Naomi Yang of pop duo Damon & Naomi landed the directing job for Julia Holter’s latest single “Our Sorrows.” It is the second track off of Holter’s mesmerizing (and one of the year’s best) Ekstasis, an avant-garde work of a record that is brimming with obscurity and charm. Ekstasis, though I have not written about it before, never fails to take me by surprise whenever I listen to it, unfolding new angle or layering that I have not heard with the previous listen. The new single “Our Sorrows” is not far from that experience. In six minutes of Holter’s orchestration of tenuousness, Yang expands the song’s lingering “If you call out, I will follow you” call out into visuals of Holter crafting a yarn around the city of Los Angeles. The perspective of interconnecting various elements in her life as she goes through her day, with that innocent look on her face, translated into the song’s omnipresence and poetic subtleties “meeting at the bus-stop, the early morning look-out crowd, dizzy from the tire view – hear them call your name.” The markings created by her wandering from the urban parts of the city to the woods serve like hints in case she decides to go back. So many meanings on this one, really.
