Say Lou Lou (or Slay Lou Lou, as they’re increasingly known around these parts), the Australian-Swedish sister duo whose gorgeous, decadent electropop has made them the act I’m most excited to watch blow up next year, have just released the video for their single “Better In The Dark” and it’s just as lush and glamorous as you’d expect. (That is, if you told me this was a Miu Miu ad, it wouldn’t come as a surprise.)
The video follows the sisters Kilbey (that’s Miranda and Elektra) through what may or may not be a love rectangle (trapezoid?) in a wine-hued sequence, all longing shots of their faces obscured by mirrors as male models cry tears of blood. It’s perfectly evocative, even if it runs a little short on narrative.
Given that “Better In The Dark” and its B-side “Beloved” are two of the most effortlessly great pop songs of the year, this is all boding extraordinarily well for Say Lou Lou in 2014.
