PVRIS have premiered a haunting, Victorian inspired, video for their new track ‘Anyone Else’ on the OUT Magazine website. The song is taken from their forthcoming album ‘All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell’, which is released on August 25th.
Lead vocalist Lyn Gunn co-directed the video with Raul Gonzo (who’s directed every PVRIS video to date) and collaborated with Courtney Scarr (who’s seen dancing in the video). Of the video Gunn has said:
“The past few years I’ve had this unexplained growing love for the Victorian Era/Early 20th century and much of the art and photographs that came from those periods. The energy of this song, as far as instrumentation and production, gives me the most unexplainable feeling… to me it feels so ethereal and dreamy and immediately transports me to old John William Waterhouse paintings and other worlds reminiscent of that. I really wanted this video to be a subtle homage to that unexplainable feeling as well as capture the energy of the contrasting perspectives that exists in the lyrics.”
“For the dance/choreographed part of the video, we had the pleasure of welcoming back Courtney Scarr (one of the dancers in the video for ‘What’s Wrong’). We were incredibly lucky to have her on board with this shoot in bringing the energy of the contrasting perspectives to life on screen. The idea to have her on board for this video was actually pretty serendipitous… I was listening to a mix of the song while scrolling on Instagram and she had just posted a video of some choreography she had just learned, the song and her movements in the video synched up perfectly and it dawned on me that she needed to be in this video… She also has an energy/look that resembles a lot of the women that Waterhouse would paint.”
