Shares new video "Spells" - EP 'The Long Sleep' out today via Sacred Bones Records
Today sees Norwegian multidisciplinary artist Jenny Hval release her new EP 'The Long Sleep' via Sacred Bones (scroll down for details). As Hval’s first
official release since 2106’s Blood Bitch, “The Long Sleep” EP follows the Lost Girls collaborative EP withHåvard Volden, released this past February, and precedes Hval’s debut
novel, Paradise Rot, published by Penguin Random House’s Verso, and out October 2nd. Hval is also set to play a London show on June 5th.
After presenting “Spells” as a pre-release stream, Hval now reveals the song’s video, directed by Constance Tenvik. As Hval describes it, “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.”
