Lisa Mitchell has released the video for Warriors stand-out track ‘Warhol’, part one of a video journey which will be completed with the release of the title track later this year.
The clip features Hunter Page-Lochard, who you may remember from the excellent Aussie film ‘The Sapphires’, and was directed by Vanessa Gazy.
As Mitchell explains, “The song is slightly devastating for me, as it’s about a betrayal…I kept having visions of all these past and future ‘selves’ coming to my aid, embodying me, as I fled, to an altar hidden in the forest, where I knew I would be welcomed by the spirit of the shrine, ‘Warhol…’ For surely he would understand this madness?”
Stick with her…
“Back in the real world, I was stopped in my tracks when I saw a short-film of director Vanessa Gazy’s [‘Foal’], which takes place at the edge of the forest in Australia where she grew up. I had an inkling she was the one who would direct this! I hunted her down and sure enough, she resonated so strongly with it and agreed to take the reins!
“All my gratitude goes to her, for taking a little seed from this wounded time and growing this two-part wilderness that became very much her own; something incredibly layered with meaning for us both.”
Warriors is out now.
