The timing was spot on with the delivery of this visual treat from Lykke Li today, given the snowy streets that greeted us here in New York this morning! The just released video for I Follow Rivers sees Lykke running through snowy fields, cloaked in a black veil, stalking her man. It’s so simple, yet so compelling!
Lykke Li had this to say of the video…
Following the footsteps of Andrei Tarkovsky’s “The Sacrifice”
it is shot on the magic island of Gotland, Närsholmen to be specific.
A place like no other, a love like no other.
A love like a drug, she loves like the river, a love caught on fire, fueled by desire.
Where you running, who you running from?
A love story with no end and no beginning.
The Magician remix of I Follow Rivers stole my heart a few weeks ago, but this new Dave Sitek (of TV On The Radio) comes in a close second! I love the addition of those live instruments to the mix, blow those horns! – Camille
