In the latest issue of Utne Reader Julianna Barwick’s sound is described as “somewhere between a lullaby and a hymn,” and The Magic Place, her first full-length album, as “channeling the vocal force of what seems an entire medieval church choir.” Now the ethereal singer has attempted to bring that sound to life visually in this video for the title track of the album. Pitchfork describes the Jacob Corbin-directed video as “a slow moving journey through a variety of evocative, digitized landscapes, [that] features footage from the 1983 film Celebration: I Am All of These.” Check out the video below and go to Pitchfork for Barwick's tour dates.
