Backed by clips of climate crisis, protest and dance, Emily Wells appears front and center in the video for her newest single, “Come on Doom, Let’s Party.” Surrounded by strings, echoed synths and drums, Wells sings with forlorn longing. “My movements are actions of love, mimicry, isolated protest. My movements illustrate willful blindness. My movements illustrate a willingness to see. My movements illustrate a fury and a sorrow at the prognosis for our planet,” she writes about the song and video. The pair form an odd and artful scene, and the result is powerful and poignant.
