WATCH // Woman’s Hour Share “Conversations” Video Via FADER, New ‘Conversations’ Album Out July 21st (15th US)

London four-piece Woman’s Hour have released a new music video for ‘Conversations’, the title-track from their debut album released 21st July (15th US) on Secretly Canadian. Premiering via FADER this morning, Watch the video above or here on their YouTube / Vevo.

Directed by Frank and Jane, the video follows the beautiful monochrome aesthetic shown by the band on previous videos and their album art. The new video is their take on ‘Group Primary Accumulation’ (1973), a performance piece by the celebrated American choreographer Trisha Brown. “We are four non-dancers engaged in a conversation with ourselves. Separately together. The video highlights this isolation. Four people silently moving in sync.” says lead singer Fiona Burgess, who came across the piece while touring in America earlier this year.
