Gazelle Twin has shared an edgy, CCTV-based video for ‘Fear Keeps Us Alive’, a track from her soon-to-be-released new album Black Dog.

The album, said to be revolve around the themes of “confrontation, childhood fears and how they manifest in adulthood”, is released on October 27 and comes backed with three UK live dates.

The fear in ‘Fear Keeps Us Alive’, says Gazelle Twin aka Elizabeth Bernholz, is a “daily, constant, almost mundane common fear among women. I have often connected this lifelong feeling to the sense of a ghostly male presence that lurks in my dreams. Women are (and always have been) constantly haunted by the potential of being harmed.”

The video – directed by long-time collaborator Chris Turner (Favourite Colour: Black) and assisted by photographer Teri Varhol – harnesses the haunting, omni-present qualities of CCTV. Shot on old format DV and Hi-8 cameras to create a detached, coldly voyeuristic point of view, it shares scenes with the upcoming supernatural short film Saint Maria’s Way, directed by Chris and written by Chelsea Kania. The film explores the same themes as ‘Fear Keeps Us Alive’, using CCTV to reconstruct the final journey of a missing woman.

Chris Turner said: “I love working with Elizabeth and Teri. We share so many of the same fascinations and obsessions, and this allows an honest and creative freedom to exist between us. We’re also all lovers of ageing, imperfect formats of photography and video. The visual and thematic elements of the song, the short film, and the album all seemed to fit perfectly together.”

Elizabeth Bernholz: “Chris, Teri and I share a passion for the weird and the uncanny. The film and images we’ve made together in various forms just wouldn’t have happened without their enthusiasm, generosity and genius skill. ‘Fear Keeps Us Alive’ is another brilliant collaboration and has produced such a striking outcome that blends so many shared ideas and visions so naturally.”
