watch the music video for sur back’s “jane eyre”

caroline sans bases her sur back project out of jupiter, florida, an appropriate location for music that is often other-worldly.  sans is hard at work on her debut album kitsch, and today she’s unveiling the music video for its lead single, “jane eyre.”  sur back is a project indebted to st. vincent – for both personal and musical reasons – and while the brass interjections and fuzz-guitar outro on “jane eyre” borrow from annie clark’s signature attributes, a singular sense of eeriness resonates in the water synth ostinatos and the stuttering drum-beat misdirections.  that eeriness is compounded by director derek mitchell’s treatment of the music video, which is largely comprised of dark, disjointed sequences that serve as the perfect backdrop to sans’ mournful contralto.  check out the video for “jane eyre” below.
