Jenny Hval Shares New Video For “Spells”

Norwegian multidisciplinary artist Jenny Hval has shared a new video for the single “Spells“, which is taken from her new EP The Long Sleep, out today via Sacred Bones.

Directed by Constance Tenvik, Hval describes it as, “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.”
