Holly Herndon releases video for new single "Home" on RVNG Intl.

Just a week ago, Holly Herndon shared a mysterious microsite out of nowhere, featuring snippets of new Herndon music and some snazzy GIFs. Now, H.H. has released a paranoia-inducing video for her latest single, “Home,” directed by Amsterdam design studio Metahaven and filmed by frequent collaborator Matthew Dryhurst.

With overt nods to NSA surveillance scandals and our privacy in the digital age, “Home” pairs techno experimentation over the artist’s sullen, multi-layered harmonies. Dated security logos rain down the screen as Herndon mimes her words directly into a static camera, which seems to be voyeuristically capturing her every move. At the start, a black censor bar in the bottom-right-hand corner displays subtitled lyrics, but they go fully black at certain points of the song, along with the logos and Herndon herself.

Brooklyn label RVNG Intl. has released “Home” today — actually, right… now — in everyone’s Windows Media Player and Winamp library. For free! Just kidding, but that would’ve been great. In all seriousness, “Home” is available now as a digital download, and the video can be watched below. NSA, it looks like Holly Herndon’s about to go Zero Dark Thirty on your ass.
