    Laura Pieri Releases Music Video For New Track, ‘Daughter of Demeter’

    Musical artist Laura Pieri has released a music video for her latest single, Daughter of Demeter.

    The single introduces both the musical and the visual world of Laura Pieri’s upcoming EP, Frankie, which also has an accompanying short film.

    Daughter of Demeter serves as one of the four tracks from the EP, and is inspired by the story of the goddess Persephone.

    “I never really understood why I felt so connected to Persephone, the goddess and the myth. In my moments of deep despair, I always found myself calling to her energy,” Pieri explains. “This song, and video, are fantastical versions of what that feels like. They’re also a puzzle piece that fit into a larger picture of the story of a young girl coming to terms with her own self, her story, and who she is.”

    The Daughter of Demeter music video combines animation with live action, and reframes Persephone as an ambitious, formidable character.

    “The story as you know it describes her as a little girl, a victim, helpless in shaping her destiny, an innocent nymph stolen and imprisoned. Is that really how it went down? What if she wanted more than flowers? What if Hades was taken with her ambition? Impressed by her fire? She walks the gardens of Earth and her presence makes flowers bloom, but she skips, carefree, in the Underworld walking amongst the dead. She didn’t wait for anyone to rescue her. She could’ve been just a nymph, forgotten, but not Persephone. In death, she will be your queen. I like to think she giggles when she hears how the souls fear her husband, thinking: it is me who they should fear.”

    As previously mentioned, Daughter of Demeter is one of the four tracks that will be featured on Laura Pieri’s upcoming EP, Frankie.
