La Dispute have premiered their new video for the track “Woman (Reading)” from their 2014 full-length Rooms of the House.
Watch “Woman (Reading)”
In this video for “Woman (Reading),” director Niall Coffey takes us out of the house and across various locations in London with dancer Julie Ann Minaai. Her movements are desperate and purposeful, shot around empty parking lots, libraries, forests, rooftops and crowded sidewalks. But no matter how often the location changes, the dance is seamless.
Coffey explains “We wanted to make something that was visually engaging, but also helped support the themes of the song. Julie represents the common ground we share between space and time. She remains a point of continuity, even when surrounded by drastic change. Using a one-point-perspective technique inspired by Stanley Kubrick, we were able to change her surroundings while maintaining a focus on the dance.”
Rooms Of The House is out now on Better Living / Resist Records.
