The Weather Station – To Talk About [Music Video]

Today, Toronto’s The Weather Station dropped another emotional driven music video for To Talk About.
The second single is taken from the upcoming surprise fifth album called How Is It That I Should Look at the Stars which comes out this Friday via Fat Possum and Next Door Records (Canada).
A companion/follow up album to the extraordinary fourth album Ignorance which came out last year.
Intimate piano driven ballad that pulls on the emotional feelings.

About the track:
“To Talk About”, a frank meditation on love. Its lyrics are beautifully plaintive, conceptualizing intimate moments of expression:
“When there is too much midnight to ever express, to listen to his breath, and to lay again my head on his chest.
I am lazy, I only want to talk about love.” Tamara Lindeman’s voice is cushioned by piano, later joined by Ryan Driver’s tenor.

The video for “To Talk About” was directed by Lindeman who says, “I wanted the video to capture the feeling of surrender the song has; a feeling of surrendering to emotion at the expense of everything else, within a world that is not necessarily conducive to that softness.
I wanted the video to be overtly emotional and sensual, and so I turned to the stereotypical signifiers of these things; beaches, sunsets, the colour red, a sort of operatic performance of emotion.

I think the video is an evocation of the feeling of being in love; obsessed with someone or something regardless of your surroundings, where you are, what is happening. Reaching towards softness and touch, even from within aloneness.”
