watch Arabrot’s creepy “Pygmalion” video


Norway’s unpigeonholeable Arabrot released their great new album Who Do You Love last week on Pelagic (order yours), and we’re now premiering the video for one of the songs, “Pygmalion.” This is one of two songs on the album where main member Kjetil Nernes turns lead vocals over to his wife Karin Park (the other is “Sons and Daughters”), and the result is a gothy, atmospheric pop song that fans of ’80s 4AD might like. (It’s also not at all indicative of the rest of the album, which is all over the place.) The video is equally eerie, and mostly revolves around footage of Karin performing the song at a piano in candlelight, as Kjetil looks on. Arabrot provides this quote along with the video:

Pygmalion fell in love with his statue. The song Pygmalion is inspired by a vision of figures come alive in a garden in France. Terrible figures that give birth to terrible visions. It sounds like Årabrot at their most tender, but is it really?

Watch and stream the whole album below.
