Kate Bush has released her third music video from 50 Words for Snow. “Eider Falls at Lake Tahoe” is of course based on “Lake Tahoe” from the album. “It is all done in camera with shadow puppets, one of my favourite art forms because of its simplicity and something I have really wanted to do for a long time now,” Kate writes. Bush, who directed the video herself, trimmed down the song to an excerpt which exists as a self-contained piece.
The story in the song involves an old dog dreaming of it’s owner. Throughout the gorgeous video, the dog wanders through the forest looking for it’s owner. The video is brilliant and subtle. The slow movement and contrasting black and white visuals compliment the dreamlike nature of the song. For a thorough review, take a look at NPR.
