Watch the Video for Damien Jurado's "Exit 353"


12 January 2016

 
Today, Damien Jurado shares the cinematic video for "Exit 353," the first single off his new (and 12th!) studio album, Visions of Us on the Land, out 3/18 on Secretly Canadian. Visions is the third and final entry in the cosmic trilogy that began with Maraqopa in 2012 and followed by Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son in 2014. The video was directed by Elise Tyler, who had this to say about the concept:
 
Damien has a strong history of cinematic music videos, so I felt very free to explore narrative and image with Exit 353. I was  inspired by the haunting landscapes of the Pacific Northwest; it is a perfect backdrop for Damien's music, which clearly originates from the towering pine trees, dense fog, and winding hills of the region. We explored the area and created a world where two seemingly vulnerable young women are more powerful than one may think. In my mind, Damien is on the verge of leaving this world and disappearing into anonymity. He is pulled back momentarily by these young women who perhaps need his help- but he quickly realized that he should have never been seduced back into society, that he was and is alone among men.
