Watch Valery Gore's Pale Neon Video For 'S.O.'

"S.O." is the closing hymn on Valery Gore's self-released album Idols in the Dark Heart. Gore has a gift for packaging dripping emotional depth in crisp tissue paper. As a track, "S.O." is a study in chorale harmony and lyrical water-coloring. It is to Idols in the Dark Heart what Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" is to Speak For Yourself, with more sober austerity.

Shot and edited by Gore, who creates and executes nearly every angle of her work, the video uses footage from the 1921 film "Rhythmus 21," by Hans Richter, to visually score Gore's intimate ode to the sadly organic dissolution of love. Muted neon blocks move across Gore with the filmic momentum of the old pictures, a subtle nod to the quietly pervasive theme: nostalgia.

Watch Gore's gorgeously bare video below:
