Norwegian artist Jenny Hval and LMFM fave has revealed brand new video to accompany the latest single from her new EP 'The Long Sleep’.
 
Speaking on the new reveal, Hval explains… “A detective like version of Jenny is carrying a mysterious suitcase through various disco infused rooms. At times her doppelganger appears. Soon enough the content of the chased suitcase is revealed to be pastel colored marshmallows. The slumber party is officially open and the sweets are up for grabs. A pillow fight evolves into a carnivalesque parade serving dance moves and crocodiles made out of bread and spinach - and with hard boiled eggs as eyes (recipe found in Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes). On the dance floor Jenny attempts to become a disco ball by draping herself in silver sequins and by pointing with a Maglite on the rotating body. While she is covered in silvery fabrics and spinning, she is not noticing that the party is leaving her.”
 
Jenny Hval Returns With New Video - Spells
As expected, it is a MUST watch.
 
Produced by Hval and Lasse Marhaug and recorded with Volden, “The Long Sleep” EP sees Hval embracing an instinctive, even subconscious, approach to creating meaning. In contrast to her more explicitly conceptual work, “The Long Sleep” foregrounds the act of composition itself, letting the melodies and structures reveal the other elements of the songs. All of the songs on the EP recycle the same compositional motives, but manipulate them into very different shapes that take them further and further out of their original, "life-like" context.
