english singer-songwriter kerry devine is slated to release her debut full-length, away from mountains, later this year.  if its lead single is any indication, the album is poised to be a lush tour de force of brooding, folk-tinged songs.

devine recently shared the pristine music video for “work you,” the clip’s unsettling plot against a pastoral backdrop the perfect analogue for devine’s haunting delivery and instrumentation.  sonically, “work you” is majestic, effortlessly ebbing and flowing from muted synth pads to passages that are more fully in bloom.  it’s an exercise in restraint, one that devine pulls off with aplomb.

away from mountains is out soon via trapped animal.  watch the music video for “work you” below.
