Music Video Monday: Julien Baker


Today's Music Video Monday lights the fuse.
Previously on Music Video Monday (and in the Memphis Flyer), we were waiting for Memphis emo phenom Julien Baker's new album. The day is here! Turn Out The Lights has dropped on Matador Records. The video for the title track was directed by Sophia Peer, who also did the first video from the album "Appointments", and was shot with the help of Memphis filmmakers Morgan Jon Fox and Breezy Lucia (who created this unforgettable one-take video for Baker's "Something"). This video uses a single, clear visual metaphor to build up to the moment when Baker unleashes her full vocal power. Strap in and take a look:
