Come Behind Me, So Good!

by Alice May

Kazu: “Come Behind Me, So Good!” - 3 mins 48s

Blonde Redhead's Kazu Makino has released a solo album - 'Adult Baby' - and this clip is part of the visual narrative which accompanies the whole thing. Shot by Eva Michon in about three hours flat, it features Kazu entering a church and gradually giving herself over to the song... a haunting, looping polyphony into which instruments slowly emerge.

The promo is by necessity simple; but this is what makes it so effective. Kazu looks both virginal and pagan in her white shirt and bare legs: part of, yet apart from, the sepulchral depths of the church - itself peopled by regular worshippers who nonetheless are drawn into the music's spell.
