Description

Victoria+Jean's EP, V+J, is out now

"Holly" is their 4th single/video and was premiered on Vice/Noisey: http://noisey.vice.com/music-video-premieres/victoriajean---holly-official-video

Swedish-Belgian duo Victoria+Jean have released the music video of a forth single of their upcoming debut album, “Divine Love”. The video was directed by Spike&Jones. The duo plans to have a different director, to film a music video for each track off their debut album.

Creepy cloth masks, a conjured quasi-Jesus, taxidermied animals that aren’t quite as dead as they appear to be… Swedish-Belgian duo Victoria+Jean go all out weird in their video for “Holly.”

Shot on 16mm by director duo Spike and Jones a.k.a. Paul Normann and Sebastien Alouf (who cut their teeth shooting for Coppola), the film has a found footage quality to it that makes the imagery all the more creepy. Apparently the pair were listening to a lot of Malian music and Nigerian rock from the 60s and 70s which, through their filter has the resulted in a crazed kind of experi-pop—like PJ Harvey reworking the "Atlas" by Battles.

Victoria had this to say about the track’s inspiration: “The song is about a friend that has problems facing reality. She changes her mind constantly, changes jobs all the time and just doesn't know what to do with her life. Her dad is an old alcoholic and she can't stand him, but whenever she's in money trouble she calls out to him. Of course, with all his regrets of not being the father he should have been, he gives her anything she wants and asks for. We love her with her flaws and her qualities, but she just isn't conscious of her actions, or the value of money.”

Somehow it feels like we’ve all had a friend like this.

Special shouts out to Kazakhstani actress, Nina Sever, who embodies the titular character—a whirling dervish flame-haired babe.
