Ahead of Thalia Zedek Band’s European tour this February and March, the band have shared the new video for Perfect Vision track “Smoked.” Filmed during the band’s December US tour and edited by Andy McBain, the video’s stark black and white footage and collaged textures reflect “Smoked”s unguarded honesty, skeletal architecture, and subtle sonic embellishments. Alison Chesley’s (Helen Money) sweeping cello and Mel Lederman’s piano flourishes bolster the band’s elegantly restrained melodies, while Zedek’s resounding vocals cut through like a knife.

The band’s upcoming tour will be their first time performing music from Perfect Vision in Europe since the album’s release and features a two-day residency at Wabe in Berlin, with a line-up curated by Zedek, including Myriam Gendon and 75 Dollar Bill.

Thalia Zedek is an artist of immutable stature and unceasing vitality. The legendary songwriter’s fiery voice and frank lyricism give her songs both their emotional potency and their stark beauty. Zedek is able to distill complex events into simple, clear, and at times monumentally weighty moments with a singular grace. Perfect Vision examines the anxiety and pain of rising divisions between people both physical and ideological, Zedek transmuting fervor and resilience into sobering laments, while her lush arrangements wrap the listener in an often complex emotional message.
