WATCH // Julianna Barwick Shares “Same” Video; ‘Will’ Out Now

Julianna Barwick’s music belongs to a pocket universe. That is to say, it’s other-worldly yet tethered to our current state of time and place. Earthly elements (vocals, keys, etc.) are contorted, folded, layered to dizzying effect. Her new album, Will, makes for a great case study. “Same”, the second single off Will, is our case in point – and now it has a captivating video to boot.

The Zia Anger directed clip finds Julianna crawling on hands and knees into a deserted building. Well deserted save for a dancing basketball player and a woman dressed to the nines. Anger on collaborating with Julianna once again,

“It goes without saying, Julianna’s music is cinematic in nature,” muses Anger on her experience directing “Same.” Anger continues, “We’ve worked together now three times (two music videos, and one short film) and each time we do, our process becomes more playful, more intuitive, more exciting. By the time we shot the final scene the entire idea had morphed in to some sort of spirit. The cast and crew were laughing so hard we were crying, it was totally hysterical, one of the purest cinematic moments I have ever experienced both in front of and behind the camera.”
