Last May, Montreal-based indie act Little Scream (aka Laurel Sprengelmeyer) released her second studio album Cult Following, and now there’s a video for soft album cut “Silent Moon”. The video is directed by Kaveh Nabatian and stars the stunning Neon Burgundy swimming around and serving sad sea siren fantasy. As Laurel explains in a press release…
I started writing the song ‘Silent Moon’ while in Hong Kong working on a film script in 2014 after seeing Tsai Ming-liang’s film The Wayward Cloud. The song and video were both inspired by a scene in that film where the main character sneaks into a reservoir at night, turns into a sea creature, and sings to the moon.
Watch the video for “Silent Moon” above.
