WATCH // Woman’s Hour Share “Her Ghost” Video, Single Out Now Digitally, New April EU Dates With Metronomy

Continuing previous Woman’s Hour visual collaborations with artists Broomberg and Chanarin (directed ‘To The End’ and ‘Darkest Place’), the new video for the band’s new single “Her Ghost” interprets lead singer Fiona Burgess’ lyrics into sign language filmed in one long, beautiful shot.

On the conception of the video Fiona says:

“After seeing two young people signing to each other in the street, I became interested in how deaf people communicate, particularly how they engage with music. Vilma, the deaf actor in our video, signs the song as a personal response to the lyrics, rather than a literal word-for-word translation. The process has enabled us to celebrate this form of engagement with music; language as a form of dance.”

Watch the new video above above or on YouTube/Vevo.

Last week, FADER premiered second track “I Need You” from the new single ‘Her Ghost’ by Woman’s Hour. If you missed it, listen to it on our Soundcloud here.

‘Her Ghost’ is now available digitally now on Secretly Canadian via iTunes, or pre-order the physical 7″ via Rough Tradeonly in the UK.
