Last month, Robyn and about a dozen dancers/extras stepped onto the stage with Zhala at the Swedish Grammis Awards ceremony and gave a performance of the latter’s Konichiwa Records single “Prophet.” All in all, it played out like somewhat of a reenactment of Nirvana‘s seminal visual for “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Now comes the lyric video for the song, which is no less of an eyebrow-raiser, and is as bizarre as the tempo-changing dance song itself.
In the clip, a hand (Zhala’s?) holding flowers that, quite frankly, look at times like filleted body organs waves back and forth to the beat, threatening to put the viewer in a hypnotized state. That’s about all that happens. The real bonus is getting to see the actual lyrics, because who knew she was actually singing things like “immovable dance all night” and “I am the confuser now”? Certainly not I.
