Chelsea Wolfe – “Pale On Pale”, “Movie Screen”, “Demons”Live Performances On Room 205

Incase’s Room 205 is a rare company-sponsored series of music videos that actually makes sense. For starters, they actually pick good musicians and actually seem to know what they’re doing in terms of video work. They’ve just released this new session, for Chelsea Wolfe’s “Pale On Pale.” I’ve had this blues and doom track on repeat all afternoon. Though the video seems little more than a succession of layers blended atop one another using various layer filters, it is entrancing, channeling witch vibes and transforming a simple cloth-draped room into a moody, otherworldly space. Her voice is so, so captivating, but in the most earthly of ways.

Below, you can also see the vocals-heavy video session for “Movie Screen,” and a rock out session for “Demons.” This lady slays all others dead.

Says Incase:

Seer/director Michael Reich, wizard/editor Forrest Borie, and white witch/set designer Tamarra Younis tapped their deepest inner goth vibes to film doom-folk artist Chelsea Wolfe. To enjoy this truly spellbinding performance we suggest you turn down the lights, don headphones, relax and get yourself into a gloomy Portishead-meets-Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein state of mind… just let the grime and the glow wash over you.

ABOUT CHELSEA WOLFE
FROM INCASE WEBSITE
California native Chelsea Wolfe has always embodied both the darkness and the light. Although her music is a raw strain of electric folk tinted by black metal and deep blues, it never wallows in despair. Instead, it wraps itself like a cloak around the human experience, encouraging uplift and seeking triumph. Her voice is a haunting call, warm and lingering, and her lyrics acknowledge life’s obscure and melancholy moments in service to the unlikely truths and beauty they so often reveal. It makes sense then that her influences run from Nick Cave and Selda Bagcan, to directors as varied as Ingmar Bergman and John Waters, with nods to the dramatic flair of Antony and Patti Smith.
