KAZU 'Come Behind Me, So Good!' by Eva Michon
KAZU, the iconic voice of the seminal band Blonde Redhead, has released the video for her latest single Come Behind Me, So Good! Directed by Eva Michon, the visual is a segment from the accompanying album-length narrative film Adult Baby, coming later this year.
Featuring costumes by Isabel Marant, the film is a folk tale shot on Elba Island, a tiny jewel in the Tyrrhenian Sea off Tuscany, which KAZU calls home. Shot in a small church in Capoliveri, KAZU dances toward the altar in her own unique way, casting a hypnotic spell with a strange allure. Set against the darkly atmospheric church, she wears a stark white shirt, floating against the backdrop like an ethereal apparition.
Michon enlisted locals from the village to play the characters praying in the church.
“The cast were all game, as we captured their close-ups, snapping, twitching and singing the a capella parts of the song, not knowing how we would use it.
“There wasn't much time to achieve what we needed with the proper reverence and care. I am a Polish Catholic, after all. This was on day two out of three for a nonstop shoot, album-length film, and we were in and out of the church in one morning, then onto the next scene.
“So we came very prepared, having scouted the church in the days leading up, including attending Sunday mass. It was chilly inside, filled with dewy air, and the sound was as gorgeous and reverb-y as you'd expect. KAZU's incredible orchestral music sounded amazing played within this context.”
