In September, Melbourne dream-folk artist Plum Green released the haunting new album Somnambulistic via Nefarious Industries. And today, Plum Green has shared a new video for her latest single, “Eyes Shut.” The track is a stark and chilling psychedelic folk track with gothic overtones, shimmering electric guitar leads juxtaposed against a simple minor-key strum and Green’s voice, while accompanied by a video of a shadowy figure moving between trees. It’s an appropriately chilly track and dark clip to pair with the season.
In a statement, Green says “Eyes Shut” is “A nocturnal initiation, coaxing the restless towards sleep. The song and video are woven together in a calming enchantment to slow the mind and guide the attention inward before lifting the veil between this realm and the unconscious empire of the dreamer.”
