I want to say that, at some time in the past three to five months, I picked up Joker’s Daughter‘s 7″ single for their song “Worm’s Head” as the cover art looks mighty familiar. Thanks to my recent move away from Seattle and into a small-ish country town between the capital of grunge and Vancouver, BC, and my subsequent attempt to get the house I purchased in order, I cannot quite recall. One thing is for sure: the lovely female-fronted folk that pours out in their video for “Lucid” is completely new to me (a fact that could simply mean that I purchased the single but did not listen to it after).
“Lucid” is a beautifully crafted video that fits the orchestral folk-pop Joker’s Daughter creates. The title “Lucid” also fits, though counter what you might envision; rather more a lucid dream. It all makes sense: this video features excellent stop-motion provided by director Hayley Morris, who has, in the past, worked closely with famed director Michel Gondry (the main man behind one of my all-time favorite films, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind).
“Lucid” can be found on The Last Laugh, released this past April by Joker’s Daughter (aka Helena Costas) on Team Love.
