The video for Amy Klein’s “Parallels” utilizes shifting, prismatic, visualizer-esque, graphics to match the sonic angularity of the track, with the end result being a hauntingly rendered visual companion. “Parallels,” the standout track off of 2016’s Don Giovanni debut Fire, is a perfect vehicle for Klein’s powerful voice; here her words bounce off an equally angular guitar line that progresses and swells to the climactic finish. Fractals swoop and swerve before expanding to reveal buried planar images of Klein performing. It is a sparse video, and one that seems fitting for the material; very few luxuries are spared in Klein’s performance, and likewise the video is cosmically Spartan.
Amy Klein's Fire is out now on Don Giovanni Records.
