Almost a year ago we spoke with Mary Ocher to try collectively to understand what’s wrong with the world. In a year a lot has drastically changed and, let’s face it, most of it went south, becoming even more bitter, tangled, harder to understand - and yet, we keep questioning the whys.

With the release of her outstanding fifth album The West Against The People, and accompanying essay, Ocher was able to document social indignation and the deconstruction of identities as citizens. As immigration, social classes, racial/sexual minorities and the fear of the other have been recurring themes, in many shapes and forms, throughout her career as a musician and artist. Her new video for ‘My Executioner’ mirrors this imminent threat of alienation.

Watch below her new video for ‘My Executioner’ featuring Your Government, directed by Ilsa Hellman.
