Marina Allen Shares Video for New Song ‘Deep Fake’

    Marina Allen has released a new single, ‘Deep Fake’. It’s the latest single off her third album Eight Pointed Star, following ‘Red Cloud’ and ‘Swinging Doors’. The track features Hand Habits’ Meg Duffy on guitar and synthesizer and arrives with a video directed by Callie Hernandez. Check it out below.

    “‘Deep Fake’ felt like a little revelation,” Allen explained in a statement. “It spun from this writing workshop I took, led by Chris Weisman. I took guitar lessons from him when I was 20. He has all these tools for songwriting, and ‘Deep Fake’ came out of a prompt. I can’t even remember what the prompt was. It’s sort of two different songs that I just put together. I wanted the first part to feel really personal, like talking to someone you love. It’s also about naming all of these very complicated things that make up our culture. Recognizing them as a reality. But to confront them and see it as sacred.”

    Hernandez added: “The video superimposes Marina’s face onto the faces of myriad women via sourced archival footage- AKA ‘Deep Fake.’ The latter half of the video was shot on a glitchy DV camera, which was intentionally used to further blur the line between reality and fiction; real and unreal.”

    Eight Pointed Star comes out June 7 via Fire.
