Julien Baker has a way with songwriting that will make your spine tingle. Her stories will make you feel things you’ve never felt before and will bring a weird sense of clarity to your mind.
The Tennessee native recently released a music video for “Turn Out The Lights.” The song is the title track to her upcoming Matador Records release, which will be out on October 27.
The song is a slow burner with gentle guitar melodies that lead up to an intense climax. “When I turn out the lights, there’s no one left between myself and me,” Baker sings at the height of the song.
The video tells a similar story. Directed by Sophia Peer, the music video stars Baker chasing a bright light through the wilderness. She’s chasing the unknown, unsure of what she’ll find.
The singer-songwriter just kicked off her Fall and Winter tour with Half Waif, Petal, Adam Torres, and David Bazan. You can see a full list of tour dates below. If there’s a stop near you, you can buy concerts tickets here.
