When watching a movie or video, there’s just something about practical effects that seems right. Sure, CGI can create some spectacular things that we’d have no hopes of managing without the aid of computers, but when practical effects are used that extra bit of tangibility goes a long ways. Waxahatchee (Katie Crutchfield) has taken this to heart in the music video for “Recite Remorse.”

The video was filmed in The Bok Building in Philadelphia last month. Crutchfield wanders around the building amid numerous lights, making her appear as if she’s underwater or in outer space depending on the moment. It may look computer-generated, but that’s not the case. The entirety of the visual effect were achieved on site.

In a statement, director Ricardo Rivera said:

“I am a video installation artist first and foremost, and this was the perfect opportunity for me to create an interpretive installation. I created an immersive space with layered translucent fabric and video projections and filmed Katie Crutchfield reacting to those elements. Optical layering of imagery onto the fabric and onto Katie created a video effect similar to many music videos of the ’90s, but done in practical way. Dreamy vibes for a dreamy song.”

Crutchfield also announced a set of new tour dates in November. These dates will be accompanied by Canadian band Ought. You can check out the new tour dates below, and Out in the Storm–the album from which “Recite Remorse” was taken–is out now through Merge Records.
