Jess Williamson is back with "Infinite Scroll", the second taster of her forthcoming album Sorceress.
"Infinite Scroll" follows on from last month's lead single "Wind on Tin".
Speaking about the accompanying visual, which is directed by Jim Larson, Williamson says, "We shot this video in early February, when the Coronavirus was a distant murmur and not an immediate threat here in the US. It was lurking in the ether though, and of course on some level we were aware of it, but we couldn't have imagined at the time where we'd all be today. But something was clearly tapping on our subconscious minds, because we made a video about running away from this world and escaping to another planet. Which sounds like a pretty nice option at the moment."
Williamson adds, "Jim and I came up with this idea of a runaway bride with an extraterrestrial twist. The dress I'm wearing is my mom's wedding dress. She bought it in 1979 off the rack at Neiman Marcus in Dallas. The veil is hers as well. Her mom sewed every pearl onto it by hand. It felt really special to wear that dress, almost holy. The first time I put it on it was surprisingly emotional for me. Jim and I are both drawn to the landscape of the Southwest, and we were talking about the musician Jim Sullivan's mysterious story, how he disappeared in the desert in New Mexico. I've spent a lot of time in New Mexico, it's a place that's near and dear to my heart. It felt right to make the video out there."
Her forthcoming Sorceress LP will follow on from 2018's Cosmic Wink, and was recorded between Brooklyn's Gary's Electric and Dandysounds, a home studio on a ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas (where she recorded Cosmic Wink).
