BIG|BRAVE have announced their new album A Chaos Of Flowers, out April 19th, 2024 via Thrill Jockey. At the same time, the band unveiled the video for single, i felt a funeral.

The essence of i felt a funeral is drawn from the poetic works of Emily Dickinson, and BIG|BRAVE encapsulate the internal struggles expressed in her words. “I discovered that most poems from folk traditions or in the public domain seem to be by men – to which I could not quite relate. In my search, I rediscovered some of my favorite works and poets,” says vocalist Robin Wattie.

Guitarist Mathieu Ball comments on the new video: "The making of this video employed a similar process as we do when writing music. As we’ve learned to let the flow of ideas take its course, the act of creating works whether with fully formed concepts or an unfinished notion, starting the work itself acts as a sort of guide to where the final outcome may land. We realised that something more visually minimal than what we first imagined was the way to go."

The video was filmed as a single-take which follows Wattie's movements. "The performer (Robin) and the audience both partake in this visual and aural conversation together creating a more intimate visual space. The audience is led in and out of her intimate space all while being kept at safe distance. Paired with the lyrical content, it can be considered an apt representation of the elements of mental collapse - a simplified visual dance with the inner and outside world."
