The Secretly Canadian Newsletter

Stella Donnelly presents a new video for “Die,” a track from her “fierce, funny, and unsettling” (Pitchfork) full-length album, Beware of the Dogs, released earlier this year via Secretly Canadian. Donnelly describes fear of mortality, delivering her concerns over sweet-sounding instrumentation and an upbeat rhythm. The video, which premiered yesterday on NYLON, was directed by sister-duo Giraffe Studios, and stars Donnelly herself dressed in dramatic and vibrant costumes throughout.

“Stella told us she wrote ‘Die’ as a song for her to run to,” say the directors. “There’s a stark contrast between the title of the song and it’s actual mood and musicality. We wanted to make a video that complimented the upbeat spirit while still touching on the idea of death. Couldn’t have done it without our dog Thinly.”

“[Stella’s] entire discography is full of patriarchy-smashing, shit-stirring masterpieces, putting her sarcasm and wit front and center. ‘Die’ is no exception, and it’s only natural that Donnelly brought us an equally charismatic video to accompany it.” — NYLON
