If the name Kathryn Calder doesn’t ring a bell, that’s OK. Does “The New Pornographers” sound more familiar? Since 2006, Calder’s has played in that indie-pop group as a multi-instrumentalist, but today she releases her third solo album, Kathryn Calder.
EW‘s has the exclusive premiere of the video for Calder’s single, “When You See My Blood.” It’s a fascinating animation based around Calder’s profile, and although the track starts out ethereal, it morphs into some of the crunchy guitar pop we’ve come to expect from the New Pornos.
