Flock of Dimes, aka Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, has shared the official video for ‘Hard Way,” directed by Lachlan Turczan.

In the video, which was shot in Joshua Tree in California, outside in the freezing dark on a windy winter’s night, Wasner’s face acts as a canvas for an array of pulsing patterns of light. Wasner says of the song:

“Although I didn’t fully understand when I wrote it, this song is an example of the power of the subconscious mind to hide truths from ourselves that we’re not yet ready to see. When I wrote this song I was still in the throes of new love, and I thought I was writing a straightforward, earnest love song. But when I tried to record it, something about the tone of it was eerie, strange, a bit darker than I would have expected. It wasn’t until long after I wrote it that I became aware of its odd foreshadowing of what was to come—that something I intended to be bright and hopeful in the moment was floating on top of a deep current of unease.”
