London trio Vaults return with a spectacular brand new video for Premonitions and we’ve got the premiere for it!
The video is directed by Louisa Fielden and Vaults’ own front woman Blythe Pepino (co-director). Shot entirely in black and white and artistically inspired by Alexander McQueen, the video sees Blythe acting out the metaphorical representation of power and struggle. Pulling mammoth weights that are tied to her body, inspired by real images of female construction workers around the globe, she posits a question about what is lost in the name of ‘progression’.
It’s a visually captivating video and reflects a mix of powerful emotions and very beautiful aesthetics. The track also features a concoction of electronic hues and synths that compliment Blythe’s breathy but beautiful lead vocals. There is a haunting and persistent quality to their music that has seen the band craft a sound and aesthetic all of their own.
Premonitions was initially released on National Anthem Records and now gets its first full release on Virgin EMI.
Vaults have also announced their first US Tour, which is set to start 13th October in Brooklyn. For more live dates check out http://www.entervaults.com/
