Agnes Obel has unveiled the mesmerising animated video for her new single “Golden Green”. Directed by acclaimed visual artist Jonas Bjerre – who is also frontman of the acclaimed Danish band Mew – the video is available to view below.
“I was honored to take on the task of making a video for this beautiful song,” says Bjerre. “The bells that emphasize the rhythm through the song, for some reason they made me think of blinking lights, and glass – glass being a recurring theme in Agnes’s new songs. As she told me more about the song, I started having ideas for some kind of internal world, maybe a world inside someone’s head, where various thoughts and feelings are in opposition, depicted as animated versions of Agnes, struggling to find harmony.”
“Golden Green” is off Agnes Obel’s new album Citizen Of Glass, available October 21st via Play It Again Sam. ‘Golden Green’ is the second single from the new album following the track “Familiar”.
