Taleen Kali has shared the new single/video, “Only Lovers Left Alive”, off her upcoming debut album out March 3rd, 2023 via Dum Dum Records.
The video was directed by Joe Rubinstein, and he shared this about it: “When Taleen asked me to create visuals for “Only Lovers Left Alive” I knew it had to be something dramatic, but it also had to have vampires! I recently picked up a scientific camera that is often used to film car crashes in test labs. I knew that if I combined a super-slow motion camera, vampires, and some fun stunt work we would have an amazing video. Close friend Marie Fink, of V10 Stunts, came on board. Marie has worked on films like The Dark Knight, Inception, Dunkirk, and most recently Star Wars Skeleton Crew.”
Taleen Kali shared this: ““Only Lovers Left Alive” is about finding connection despite all odds. I wrote this song while walking through the deserted streets of LA during the early pandemic. There was nobody in sight, I hadn’t seen another human being for days, and I imagined what would happen if there was only one other person left alive in the world. “Only Lovers Left Alive” is one of my favorite vampire movies of all time, so for the visual we wanted to create something special for spooky season that also pays homage to vampire tropes, plus a bloody twist at the end just in time for Halloween!”
Her US tour kicks off in October.
