Hila Ruach - Grizzly Bear
Hila Ruach's fierce and sensitive "A doctor in the west" is one of my favorite albums from 2015 and what better way to end the year than with a clip for the first song off of it, based on a poem by Yona Wallach.
"The clip was made out of love for horror movies and film noir classics, which also inspired me while making the album", Ruach notes. "It provides a revealing glimpse into the fears and innermost thoughts of daily life, including disconnected internet, well-known figures from the indie scene and sedatives".
A grizzly she-bear raised me
Milk from the stars was my main nourishment
The first thing I saw
In the days of my life meaning what I remember
Was how I would be able to forget
