Kristine Leschper (fka Mothers) has shared a new single, ‘Picture Window’, lifted from her forthcoming album, The Opening, or Closing of a Door. It arrives alongside a self-directed video inspired by the song’s lyric: “It’s like a picture, I think, one where we’re untouched by the future.” Check it out below.
“I was thinking about how effortless it felt to commune with the mysterious as a child, especially in the ‘natural world’ as we call it, as if it is something alien to us,” Leschper explained in a statement. “I was thinking about my sister, our shared experiences of childhood, and I wanted to create a sonic environment that felt like that. It was obvious to me that the video should embody the same character of discovery, that it should slow me down, get me out into the world to look for something unfolding, and I settled in on the quiet drama of a stream. I shot time lapse photographs and compiled them into video sequences, a meditation on time or timelessness. The resulting video is uncomplicated, things are constantly changing and yet nothing happens; I spin indefinitely in a circle, a stream bubbles on into eternity.”
