“Love And Respect,” the eerie, minor-key new single from the Copenhagen electro-pop group When Saints Go Machine, has an out-of-nowhere conscious-rap guest verse from the all-conquering Atlanta rap firebrand Killer Mike. Mike sadly does not appear in its video, but that video is pretty badass anyway. Directors Frederik Hviid and Sebastian Birk give us surreal scenes from a harrowing, thugged-out Scandinavian crime underworld that may or may not actually exist. It’s filmed beautifully, and it has a few images that I won’t get out of my head anytime soon. Watch it below.
The new When Saints Go Machine album Infinity Pool is out 5/28 on K7.
