Ireland’s Anna Mieke unveils new single and video for ‘Seraphim’
Anna Mieke reaches towards the heavens in her latest single ‘Seraphim.’
Anna Mieke has released her fourth single from her upcoming album Theatre. On ‘Seraphim’ Anna conjures up a slice of art-folk music that flutters between angelic and earthly realms.
Anna explains what influenced the song:
“While writing this song, I was listening to a lot of Juana Molina from Argentina. She has really interesting vocal rhythms going on. ‘Seraphim’ touches on loss, the ‘passing on’ of grief, and the different ways it’s expressed. But, for me, there’s something really uplifting about the song too, and having family and close friends in the video really means a lot.”
Of the video, Heisterkamp adds:
“The ‘Seraphim’ music video and the video for ‘Mannequin’ were made in quick succession and they’re definitely both part of the same body of work. When Anna and I first met to discuss ‘Seraphim,’ we realized the video was coming together around a coincidence: both of us are named after aunts who passed away before we got to meet them. This video is grappling with the idea of overcoming loss by sharing something with another, as well as focusing on what the song sounds like and how to move to it. Ultimately the video is looking at how your body always wants to react and how you can shape it continuously away from that. Making this video was a catharsis and I am so honoured that Anna entrusted me with this beautiful song.”
‘Seraphim’ is out today. Theatre is due out November 18th, 2022, via Nettwerk.
