Cold Specks has unveiled her new music video for A Season of Doubt which is taken from her album ‘Neuroplasticity’ & features guest vocals by Michael Gira of Swans.
We move like wolves in the bleak night
We dance like ghosts deprived of flight
The body will come to understand a season of doubt
The powerfully moving video was directed by Seth Pimlott and Cold Specks has revealed the feelings she was going through when the video was being made.
I was in America when the Ferguson grand jury decision was announced. I was there again when it was announced the police officer who placed Eric Garner into a fatal chokehold would not be indicted. I felt an overwhelming sense of sadness. I just kept thinking of my baby brother. My brother is 12 years old. The same age as Tamir Rice, the child who was shot and killed as he carried his toy gun. It could’ve been him.
I shouldn’t have to remember the first time I was called a nigger as vividly as my first kiss. I shouldn’t have to experience and witness the burden of being black in 2015. It shouldn’t have to be this painful.
The video for ‘A Season of Doubt’ was made with these feelings in mind.
