Karen Marie Ørsted, is my Scanadanivan pop choice of the moment. The video for ‘Glass’ does its cool visual thing by making MØ look cool as shit in a “Boss of the boys” jacket in a small Danish town. Looking forward to seeing her at SXSW. Directed by Casper Balslev.
“The video is inspired by the lyrics to ‘Glass,’ which tries to visualize the restlessness of a young person’s mind. It’s a boredom, an insatiability and anxiety. Fear of getting old, fear of missing things and fear to love. The video is shot in small Danish town called Hirtshals, which represents the provincial society well. I myself grew up in a small town, and know the feeling of restlessness and wanderlust. It reflects on a young girl’s burning desire to do something, but she has no idea what, how or where to begin. In the end it is always easier just to do nothing and wait for the dawning of a new day.”
