We’re SUPER stoked to be premiering a brand new music video for Zelma Stone’s “Cut Hair” today, you guys. Directed by SF/Austin-based director Vanessa Pla and filmed in Golden Gate Park, the song lyrics “speak of abusive partnerships and sexual harassment coinciding the rise of the #MeToo movement. This video is a portrait of the complexity of one woman’s process of anger and grief when grappling these themes,” says front woman Chloe Zelma Studebaker.
And this is just the first of a series of January releases for the Bay Area-based – next up is new single “Light Bulb Boy”, which is out two days from now on January 4th, and following that, they’ll be dropping their debut EP Layla on the 18th. The four-track collection will continue to meditate on tough subjects – in addition to the aforementioned themes of sexual harassment and abuse, the narrative delves into grief, loss, heartbreak and self-worth. The band will also have a special release show at the Rickshaw Stop on the 19th ft. an all-women fronted bill, so if you happen to be in San Francisco then, be sure and grab a ticket to support!
And now, without further adieu, here is “Cut Hair”:
