In this video for Zola Jesus, an eerie meeting between sleepwalker and her own televised image leads to a breakdown of dream and reality when static electricity becomes an otherworldly conductor for their psychic twin telecommunications. Both worlds then destabilize until they decay entirely, referencing old rental VHS tapes, whose images have been destroyed from repeat viewings of the most heightened cinematic moments.

Behind the Scenes
"It gets tiring to keep reiterating the imminent arrival of Zola Jesus to stardom."

"It’s like she’s reading my diary. (And you might also want to think Poltergeist.) Watch at NME."

"For one of Zola Jesus‘ loneliest songs in a repertoire filled with them, she cast herself in two of the most isolating situations imaginable: sole person in a giant house, and stuck inside the television. Actually both of those situations are mostly just terrifying, but director Jacqueline Castel put some tragic beauty among the fright."
