Anastasia Coope‘s “Norma Ray” is out now.
A few weeks ago, we had the honor of premiering Anastasia Coope’s impressive debut track “Norma Ray,” an intricate folk track that we called “a deliciously dense piece of psychedelia.” Today, the New York based singer-songwriter has unveiled the accompanying visuals, that were shot and directed with Anna Brief in the Hudson Valley in the Fall of 2020. Inspired by Buñuel, a master of the surrealist movement, the video features, amongst others, snippets of Coope running with mischievous abandon around a wooded area’s small pond as well as extinct animals from the 1955 sci-fi movie Journey to the Beginning of Time, directed by Karel Zeman. Well, just like with the song, there’s a lot going on in this DIY clip, which was made “simply for fun,” as she explained. Watch the video, support via Bandcamp and listen to the artist explain the concept of her track below.
