Grouper has shared another new track from her upcoming album, Shade, out October 22 via Kranky. The new track, “Ode to the Blue,” is a beautifully sparse new song with a video that depicts people kissing in a graveyard. Simple, strange and perfectly Grouper.
Director Dicky Bahto says in a press release: “Liz sent me a love song in the middle of the worst part of the pandemic in Los Angeles to think about making a film for. I was depressed and scared and felt incapable of thinking. She mentioned picturing people kissing; and “maybe something in a graveyard.” I wanted to see my friends. I wanted to feel intimacy again. I thought: what if the film is just people making out in graveyards?“
