Yahoo! Music Premieres Rachael Sage’s New Video for “Wax”
Yahoo! Music is hosting the exclusive premiere of the new video, "Wax" by prolific songstress Rachael Sage. The video for the song "Wax", from her new album Blue Roses, may just be her most evocative yet. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Nick Clark and set in the eclectic, non-profit Los Angeles-based MorYork Gallery, the clip shows the colorful Sage – who is also a visual artist herself – seamlessly integrated within the extraordinary industrial jungle of veteran sculptor Clare Graham. Made entirely of recycled materials such as soda-cans and puzzle pieces, Graham's unusual artwork provides the perfect context for Sage's alt-pop song about the karma we create within relationships. Renowned theremin master Armen Ra (Antony & The Johnsons, Marc Almond) also makes a guest appearance in the video.
