It’s too hot anyway, right? Cool down with this silky, chilly start to your weekend: Feist’s “Anti-Hero” music video.
The Canadian songwriter is cloaked in shadows and gripping the lines on wallpaper for her “sappy songs about what went wrong.”
The simple black and white clip was helmed by Martin de Thurah, whose work previously with Leslie Feist exposed an acumen for the melacholy. “The Bad in Each Other” broke my heart in 12 different ways. In “Anti-Hero,” they together kind of show off what a broken heart does when its listlessly broken.
Of this new clip, de Thurah told Nowness “I had thought about making something very simple, complex and emotional with Leslie alone. I found the song very intimate, and wanted the video to reflect that.”
“Anti-Hero” is from Feist’s newest “Metals.”
