Fable has unveiled the visuals for her new single ‘Womb’. Following on from her previous video for ‘Orbiting’, which drew praise from the likes of NME, 6Music, CLASH and Creative Boom, this stunning offering sees the Devon-born singer-songwriter continue to demonstrate her singular creativity as we look towards her forthcoming debut album.
Directed by Matt Hutchings, the video sees Fable and dancer Severina Simone perform a beautifully choreographed dance that reflects the waves of constant change we all go through, especially women, with Fable eventually bursting into flame and being reborn from the ashes.
“I wanted the video to reflect the cycles that we all go through, but particularly the female experience. The images running through the video show this through a dance between two women, and the cyclical, phoenix like rebirth through fire a female will experience each month. The steady rhythm of change is something we all as humans experience; the only constants are flux and change. Matt Hutchings and I decided we wanted to shoot it in black and white to give it a contemporary noir feel, with a focus on moment and form. Severine Simone embodied a spectre-like character, sent to convince Fable that things will not change or renew, but inevitably the cycle continues," Fable explains.
Having built up a reputation as one of the UK's most promising new artists, being lauded by the likes of The Guardian, Mixmag, Q and Rolling Stone, collaborating with Orbital and playing at Glastonbury, the tragic loss of a close friend and resultant burnout and depression led to Fable taking time out from her music career in 2016 to protect her mental health. Four years later, and now an ambassador for mental health charity My Black Dog, Fable is relaunching her sound to the world, with previous single ‘Orbiting’ unveiled in February. Newly-signed to Naim Records, the label wing of the award-winning premium audio brand, she has recorded a debut album of genre-fluid, searingly honest and darkly beautiful music that spans from urgent post punk to introspective electronica, whilst posing questions that are both timely and personal, yet timeless.
