Last night released her new music video for “Out of the Woods” and it is awesome!
I think it’s the most visually stunning out of all the music videos from 1989, which says a lot because they were all pretty spectacular. I especially like how it visually tells the story of the struggle of the relationship: after the relationship ended (“she lost him”), she had to go through many struggles, as people do, to move on (“she found herself and that…was everything”). She represents the struggles through the many different wilderness/weather problems. Which I total relate to living in through the hell of New England winter.
Also, it was filmed in New Zealand, a place I’ve always sort of wanted to go to. I had a teacher in middle school who once told me the toilets in New Zealand flush in the opposite direction as they do in the U.S. I’m not sure if she was just pulling my leg or being honest, but that was the start of wanting to visit. Since then, I’ve seen pictures and books where you can bike through canyons and valleys and it looks gorgeous. This video just emphasizes the beauty of New Zealand…well…someday I’ll go…hopefully…maybe.
Anyway, do yourself a favor and start of 2016 on the right foot and watch “Out of the Woods” video!
P.S. Happy New Year.
