Girls Names – “Bury Me” Music Video

We had previously interviewed the drummer of Dignan Porch, Philippa Bloomfield, about her album cover design for the band’s album, Tendrils.

Here, in this video for Girls Names’ “Bury Me,” Bloomfield flexes her video-crafting muscles by editing together a a wonky mixture of live video and projection, as possibly run through filter after filter, copy after copy, and format after format. The result is like a karaoke video that lives somewhere in a netherworld between present and future, and I like that the unpredictable recording outputs are what really make this morbid track take on life.
