Every so often we come across an artist with a style that just oozes appeal. This is a super-duper video and her sound is tickety-boo. Mansun singer songwriter Paul Draper is producing the new sound.
Catherine Anne Davies aka The Anchoress says:
“The video is is feminist manifesto of sorts. It’s made up of vintage footage that I compiled from the Prelinger archive of instructional films from the 1950s on marriage, human reproduction, and domesticity… The finished video is a Homeland-inspired collaboration with the amazing guys at Beatcast. It sees my original film collage projected onto a series of “brides through the ages” – featuring my extensive and not-at-all-Miss-Havisham-esque vintage wedding dress collection…. (God bless eBay!)”
The ‘One For Sorrow EP’ will be released on November 3rd 2014. Available on 12″, digital download and on CD as a special ribbon-bound romance novel edition.
Catherine aka The Anchoress will be touring with Simple Minds throughout 2015.
