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.

Pre-order Conversations via iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution / deluxe bundle, and your local record store.

See the band this summer play festivals including Field Day this weekend, Bestival, Green Man and Latitude. In September they then play their biggest London headline show to date on September 23rd at Village Underground.

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.
