To accompany the release of this music video is Black Sea Hotel’s new studio recording of “Zhenish Me Mamo”, engineered by James Frazee, mixed by Sarah Small, and mastered by Sarah Register, of The Lodge Mastering. This release is a recording debut for BSH’s newest member, the vocally entrancing Shelley Thomas. “Zhenish Me Mamo” will be released Winter 2015, as a single EP with live bonus tracks from recent shows throughout late 2014.
Black Sea Hotel is currently immersed in the production of their debut music video, “Zhenish Me Mamo”, a potently haunting contemporarily-arranged folksong about dragons and fear. The video is directed by creative whirlwind, Josephine Decker, who’s proven it possible not only to locate and acquire miniature modern-day dragons in NYC, but also to successfully choreograph them moving with grace across the faces and throughout the long hair of Black Sea Hotel member’s Shelley, Sarah and Willa… near ocean waves, at dawn. Decker has crafted an other-worldly experience fear, sensuality, and strange-ity all in one. Video is scheduled for release early 2015.
