The Transcendent folk-pop of LA-based artist, Weyes Blood aka Natalie Mering explores “everything that drives us, divides us, and destroys us.” Her otherworldly expansiveness, hook-laden melodies, flawless vocals and swirling psychedelic folk have had audiences enthralled. True to form, she has just aired a stunning new video for ‘Hearts Aglow;’ a highlight from her acclaimed album, And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow– a timeless cinematic centrepiece urging connection in the face of darkness. She sings “Oh, hearts aglow/ We don’t know where we’re going……The whole world is crumbling/Oh, baby, let’s dance in the sand.” Merging beauty with fragility, and darkness with soaring harmonies, she has expressed the doubt and yet each track is buoyed by hope — her music unfurling with stunning nuance and ease.

The video was directed by tour photographer Neelam Khan Vela and is a visual collage of her headline dates in Europe and North America.
