WATCH // Julianna Barwick Premieres “The Harbinger” Video, West Coast Tour Starts Friday

Julianna Barwick has had a busy Fall releasing her new album Nepenthe, opening for Sigur Ros on their North American tour, and playing the opening night party of Pitchfork Festival Paris just a few weeks ago.

Today, she releases the second music video from her debut album, Nepenthe, for the song “The Harbinger”. The video, made with her constant collaborator, director Derrick Belcham and premiered today on Pitchfork, beautifully captures the song’s celestial qualities and can be seen above or here on our Youtube channel.

On the video, director Belcham notes, “The video illustrates a moment in which an individual makes a sudden choice which they know will change their life forever, for better or worse, and the freedom that this affords them, liberating or oppressive. It is a non-linear illustration of catharsis.”
