Sharon Van Etten - "Magic Chords" Video

Sharon Van Etten doesn’t exactly seem like the type to release music videos that prominently feature dicks and rigor mortis, but perhaps we should reevaluate. In SVE’s new video for “Magic Chords,” a song from her Tramp album, Etten herself plays a pilgrim lady who either discovers or hallucinates a giant pile of naked dead bodies in the woods. Rick Alverson directs; watch it below.

Tramp is out now on Jagjaguwar.

  1. I have no shame in admitting that I was hoping the NSFW tag was in reference to Sharon Van Etten boobies. I guess I’ll just to settle for a boobie-less video of a great song. SIGH.

  2. Sharon Van Etten boobie-less, but there was plenty of bewbs, and everything else for that matter.

    Interesting video. I wonder what the story behind it is. I’m guessing it could be some sort of old story being re-told, or re-interpreted. Hence, pilgrim wear.

    Could just be an artsy video, though. The naked folks show up both times she’s singing ‘you got to lose sometimes’, so maybe they’re supposed to have something to do with your past being laid bare. Or past failed attempts. Don’t know, haven’t really worked out the rest of the lyrics.
