Feist debuts her new video for the single â€œThe Bad In Each Otherâ€ off her critically-acclaimed album, Metals (Cherrytree/Interscope). Directed by Martin De Thurah (James Blake, Glasvegas), the video captures glimpses of something human. We get a peek inside something real between people – could be loss, longing or love – things which are about being a human being.
â€œThe Bad In Each Otherâ€ video opens up more aspects than it concludes; possibly something one can’t grasp, but it points at it or touches it and leaves the viewer with different kinds of emotions. Like a song or a poem, different people will connect to different things – and those might change from time to time when watching it.
â€œWhen I approached Martin to make a little film for this song, he told me he thought it sounded like a battle cry, and that he wondered about finding the little, tiny wars people experience in between the big dramas,â€ Feist tells SPIN.com. “I interpreted that to mean all the quiet internal battles that guide our actions; all the hopes and struggles we suppress or let carry us away. I feel like he’s made a sort of symphony of In Betweens and stretched split seconds into feel-able, graspable echoes.” Check out the video HERE.
Feist will be returning stateside this spring to play a run of dates across the country in support of Metals which ended 2011 on top of many â€˜Best of 2011â€™ lists including Pitchfork, Spin, Rolling Stone and was chosen as the #1 Album of 2011 in the New York Times. Jon Pareles (New York Times) praised her â€œsongs of heartache, solitude and eventual solaceâ€ as â€œâ€¦both handmade and subtly sophisticatedâ€¦She traded pop gloss for pensive, lingeringly unresolved melodies and arrangements that crest unexpectedly from within, with her own taut electric guitar and apparitions of horns and voices summoning the tensions behind the beauty.â€ Last month she received a nomination for the prestigious Brit Award (Grammy equivalent) for the 2012 â€œInternational Female Artistâ€ prize.
Kicking things off with a two weekend stint at Coachella, Feist and her band will make stops everywhere from Marfa, TX to the famed Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
