“The song ‘How, In My Bones’ treats pieces of a lingering childhood memory filled with emotions of shame, loss and the inevitable experience of learning from mistakes,” Erika explains. “Erika shared a lot with us - her memories, photographs of her childhood, the place where she grew up and things she remembered doing and feeling there, which inspired most of our choices,” says Mylène Simard, who directed the video alongside collaborator Becca Blackwood. “I became interested in creating moving portraits where objects and artifacts would be strewn around Erika, in a way that evokes hazy dreams or faint memories … and have her feel ‘stuck’ in these portraits, the way we can obsess over moments that transpired years ago, or events that still haunt us.”
