Your tears don't shake my world like Britney Spears.

NEW VIDEO: Oh Land – White Nights

The music video for Oh Land’s “White Nights” has finally arrived, and it is so worth the wait. When I heard the directing collective CANADA was at the helm, and that she had a 5-day shoot in Barcelona, I expected a collage of trippy and stunningly-shot visuals. Well, it’s safe to say the end product is nothing short of astonishing. The Danish songstress took us through her fantastical world of glittery hands, headdresses, and impractical animal-head shoes! Apparently, her midsummer daydream consists of surreal scenarios involving lagoon jumping, forest frolicking, horse riding, and lots of dancing (her ballet dancer background certainly helps). I especially like the Kylie-esque bit when she does the robot. For me, the video feels like a proper old-school MTV music video, fast-paced, fun, refreshing, and delightfully bonkers. This is undoubtedly one of the best pop videos I’ve seen this year. I’m glad her label believes in her enough to commission this.

 

 

Her self-titled album is still one of 2011’s highlights for me. It’s a carousel of enchanting, whimsical magic-pop that you should not miss out on. To celebrate the video premiere, 2 free remixes of “White Nights” by Twin Shadow and Max Tundra are yours to keep after the jump.
