Little Scream shares “Silent Moon” video

Today, Little Scream (aka Laurel Sprengelmeyer) shares the stunning new video for “Silent Moon” from her album Cult Following. Directed by Kaveh Nabatian and starring underground drag queen from New Orleans Neon Burgundy, the video illustrates the longing found in the lyrics ‘Silent moon I’d like to know / Why on earth you have to go / When I need you / And I need you more/ When the day comes round’.


Of the inspiration behind the video, Laurel says, “I started writing the song ‘Silent Moon’ while in Hong Kong working on a film script in 2014 after seeing Tsai Ming-liang’s film The Wayward Cloud. The song and video were both inspired by a scene in that film where the main character sneaks into a reservoir at night, turns into a sea creature, and sings to the moon.

Little Scream’s North American tour with Local Natives continues this week. Full tour dates can be found below. Cult Following is available now on CD and LP from Dine Alone or from your favourite digital outlet. In addition, her protest anthem “People” can be purchased here, with all proceeds going to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
