VOTD: Feist’s ‘Bittersweet Melodies’ Goes Back To The FutureBy Laura Aguirre
Feist‘s new music video for “Bittersweet Melodies” is a bunch of bittersweet memories. Featuring Argentine photographer Irina Werning‘s famous photo project Back To The Future, the video is more of a slideshow with a few bits of video thrown in. It’s actually a perfect combination. Check it out.
Chances are you’ve probably already seen Werning’s work, but it really works here. The recreation of old photographs by the very same people, juxtaposed with Feist’s nostalgic lyrics and melancholic tone makes the slide show that much more powerful.
‘Bittersweet Melodies’ is from Feist’s critically acclaimed 4th studio album Metals. Here’s the video:
Feist also revealed the artwork for her single with Mastodon, which is titled Feistodon. The single is set to hit stores on Record Store Day (April 21). The image was posted by Spin, and features Feist’s face mashed together with guitarist Brent Hind’s tattooed hairline, and a black tongue.
Feist will be headlining the Green Man Festival this year. She’s also recently announced a list of U.S. and Europe tour dates for the rest of the year. Stops include Coachella, The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo and Pitchfork Festival.
