VIDEO PREMIERE: ANNA MCCLELLAN
Aug 26, 2015
Brooklyn via Nebraska art folk singer Anna McClellan gets by with a little help from her friends. On “Fire Flames,” McClellan’s hauntingly beautiful melodies are coupled with backing vocals from Conor Oberst and mandolin from Mike Mogis. Directed by Parisian filmmaker Amélie Raoul, the visual component to “Fire Flames” has an old Polaroid-like look to it. In the video, McClellan moves from the piano to the grass while singing with grace. “Fire Flames” will be featured on Anna‘s debut album due this fall, though, it’s the oldest song that she still plays since she wrote it when she was 18.
“This song was originally a tool for me to lift my spirits when I wasn’t feeling so good,” said McClellan of “Fire Flames.” “I didn’t play it for anyone for a long time, but am very happy to be sharing it now. directed the video, and getting to work and hang out with her while shooting was a true pleasure.”
McClellan just relocated from Omaha to Brooklyn and will be playing shows with The Good Life and Big Harp tonight in Boston at The Sinclair tomorrow at The Bowery Ballroom.
