top of the day! i am super psyched to bring y’all the world premiere of jeff zenter video for his song “fire in my bones,” off one of my favorite records of 2012, a season lost – which, obviously, i cant recommend enough. jeff’s music is much like walking/running through a southern gothic dreamscape that has no end, no beginning. i think this video perfectly depicts visually, what jeff creates sonically. a huge credit is due to the director ashlee elfman and julie pepin and sean leslie, the cinematographers.
about the video: it was filmed in los angeles, last december, over a couple of days. rykarda parasol, who actually provides vocals on the song, stars in the video along with jeff. on the first day of filming jeff swan in the pacific, which in december i am guessing isnt the warmest. he also fixed an alternator belt and built a fire w/ one match, all while wearing a white dress shirt, vest, and black dress pants. a man of many talents, mr zentner must be, or crazy? also, the burning love letters were created specifically for the video by l.a. artist, sam hart. she thought up a cipher alphabet, taught herself to write in it, and then wrote 88 of the letters during christmas time in 2012. the number 88 was used as a two-fold symbol of eternity and the letters were only decipherable by the two lovers.
