Independent film director Alex Ross Perry has a full slate of upcoming projects, including a new feature film and a yet-to-be-titled live-action “Winnie the Pooh” project, but he found the time to co-direct a music video for the duo Sleigh Bells with the band’s Derek E. Miller. The song is titled “I Can Only Stare” and it’s off their upcoming album “Jessica Rabbit.” The video was shot in 16mm and it features singer Alexis Krauss playing three different women. Watch it below.
Perry has directed four feature films so far. His first two films were “Impolex,” based off Thomas Pynchon’s novel “Gravity’s Rainbow,” and “The Color Wheel,” starring Perry and Carlen Altman as two siblings on a road trip. He garnered much acclaim with his third film “Listen Up Philip,” which stars Jason Schwartzman as an abrasive writer who moves in with a veteran novelist (Jonathan Pryce) in order to escape his shaky relationship with his girlfriend (Elizabeth Moss). His most recent film was “Queen of Earth,” a psychological thriller starring Moss and Katherine Waterston as two women who spend a week together at a lake house and realize they’ve drifted apart. Perry also recently co-starred in the new comedy “Joshy,” alongside Adam Pally, Thomas Middleditch and Nick Kroll, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Sleigh Bells have previously released three studio albums — “Treats,” “Reign of Terror” and “Bitter Rivals” — and their fourth album “Jessica Rabbit” will be released on November 11.
