Dark neofolk project, one-woman act Ols, or Anna Maria Oskierko to be exact, has released what is said to be the third and final single off her latest album Widma, on Pagan Records.
‘Drzewa Dawno Zmarły’ is the single and translates as “The Trees Have Long Died” from Polish and you can watch the video for it here at RAMzine.
“Unlike the two videos you’ve already seen – placed in mythical timelessness – the third video is more modern, presenting a civilian version of me, not only in the forest, but also against the background of buildings, even among the walls covered with graffiti,” said Oskierko.
“I decided on such a video to emphasise that I do not try to reconstruct history, I do not copy anything, and if I happen to have any traditional inspirations at all, I filter them through my very contemporary attitude to music and art in general.
“I am a modern person, with modern views and scientific approach to reality, but I am sure that this doesn’t prevent me from being a soulful poet at the same time. That’s why in a video illustrating my favourite song from the new album I’m showing you my usual self, the way I typically am.”
