Jenny Hval has released a video for her track Female Vampire.
The song features on the Norwegian artist’s upcoming album Blood Bitch, which will launch on September 30.
Hval says of the promo: “What does eternity feel like? How do you ‘live’ when there is no death? Usually, the vampire is depicted as a lonesome, all-knowing and ancient creature combining violence, aggressive sexuality and deceitful youth.
“The pack behind the video for Female Vampire wanted to explore vampiric eternity in a different narrative: in a group of romancing friends. The vampire friends move through their hometown of Oslo, partaking in public and private rituals of moving together.
“We also wanted to combine ideas from old vampire trash movies and modern trashy iPhone videos, resulting in an enigmatic world of time-lapse like slow motion where everything is always moving, or moving on. Not there, or not there yet.”
Hval heads out on the road next month in support of the follow-up to 2015’s Apocalypse, Girl.
