Sargent House goth darling Chelsea Wolfe teamed up with director Mark Pellington last year to make a full length film out of her harrowingly gorgeous album Pain Is Beauty, entitled Lone. Wolfe co-wrote the movie with Pellington, whose name you may recognize from his direction of Pearl Jam’s Jeremy, Nine Inch Nails’ We’re In This Together, and even gerbil-loving actor Richard Gere in The Mothman Prophecies. Check out the first offered slice of the film below, a macabre and desolate abstraction that plays out to the visceral opening track Feral Love:
Pellington had the following to say about Chelsea and the film:
Chelsea Wolfe’s voice and lyrics narrate this voyeuristic look into the abstract, cathartic subconscious. Lone is a sight and sound exploration into the themes of nature, sexuality, memory, mortality, forgiveness, love, innocence, fragility, violence and beauty.
The rest of the film will be released soon. Until then you can stream the album itself below:
Chelsea is currently wrapping up a little tour with some band called Queens Of The Stone Age. Remaining dates here.
