Less than a month ago, American singer-songwriter Eleanor Friedberger announced that she will be returning with her fourth solo record in May, titled Rebound. Along with the announcement came a bouncy 70’s/80’s inspired single by the name of “In Between Stars.”
Now, Friedberger has followed up with an equally retro music video for her dazzling first single. The video was actually shot by Friedberger herself, and edited by Los Angeles based video artist Danny Perez.
“I saw Danny do live visuals for Body/Head (Kim Gordon and Bill Nace) and Bjorn Copeland (formerly of Black Dice) while I was in LA in January,” said Friedberger about the video. “I thought his use of analog feedback and bold color fit the mood of Rebound perfectly. With a little moral support and instruction from Kim Gordon: ‘move around, just twirl.’ I turned the camera on myself and hit record.”
From her days spent in The Fiery Furnaces, creating melodically off-kilter, idiosyncratic mini-epics, to her three acclaimed previous solo albums, Eleanor Friedberger continues to create exactly what we need to hear when we need to hear it, and “In Between Stars” is just further evidence that she shows no sign of stopping soon.
