“Super-quick guitar finger work, with all the finesse of heavy metal without the comical bombast. Stern’s shimmery voice tops it all off, occupying the exact stylistic midpoint between Yoko Ono and Belinda Carlisle. ” – New York Magazine

“…like Eddie Van Halen, she’s an adept fingertapper, creating blindingly fast riffs that float like bubbles, even as they speed along at Malmsteenian notes-per-second.” – NPR

“…one of the most innovative guitarists in indie rock…” – Pitchfork

Hot on the heels of the release of Marnie Stern’s latest record, The Chronicles of Marnia, comes the fantastic video for “Immortals.”

“Immortals” is a portrait of the duality of Marnie Stern; illustrating both her life as a homebody in her Upper East Side apartment as well as her rich inner fantasy world.

The director, Allie Avital Tsypin and Stern wanted to create a humorous and theatrical mythology around the ideal of being a “rock star” set against the reality of an independent musician.

The video grew out of a conversation between the two at Stern’s apartment when Stern expressed fears, anxieties, and also the thrills of her career as a musician.

“I was really moved by her honesty, openness and self-deprecating wit. It felt imperative to present Marnie as a human being, and shooting in her home helped,” says Tsypin.

Marnie Stern’s apartment was redecorated for the video to match the cover of her first record (featuring a painting by Marnie’s good friend Bella Foster)…pink walls and a ceiling covered in stars.
