Video of the Moment #1603: Woman’s Hour

Woman’s Hour‘s debut album ‘Conversations’ is out now on Secretly Canadian. Here is the video for ‘In Stillness We Remain’, their forthcoming single to drop on the 22nd of September. The promo for the single is special, in that it was directed by singer Fiona Burgess at Queen Katherine School, where she and two of her bandmates attended as children. The young dancers in the video are current students, tasked with creating dance routines of their own devising. I’ll leave it to Burgess to describe it further.

Making this film was a wonderful nostalgia trip; walking along our old school corridors, encountering some of our teachers from back in the day, recalling how self-conscious we all felt about ourselves and the world. By focusing on a real group of teenage friends, the dancers in this film manage to capture all the awkwardness of growing up, but they also reflect what young people pick up from mainstream pop culture and try to emulate. Their movements are clumsy and idiosyncratic, but it’s these imperfections that I love.
