Folky post-rocker Emma Ruth Rundle has shared an unsettling new video for her track In My Afterlife, which you can watch below. The track is taken from Rundle's recently released Engine Of Hell album.
"I developed the character, makeup and costume myself, which I made by painting and modifying found articles while I was in the UK," explains Rundle of the video, which she directed with John Bradburn. "This mask or character is supposed to represent what is left after life ends, wandering the halls of their own existence, reliving little joys, and sufferings. They are a demented and unsettled character."
At the same time Rundle has announced a run of North American headline tour dates for March and April, which will be the first time she'll have performed music from Engine Of Hell and the follow-up Orpheus Looking Back EP over there. Rundle will be supported by Japanese-American multi-instrumentalist and composer Patrick Shiroishi.
