CocoRosie – “Child Bride” Video

“Child Bride,” from CocoRosie’s new album Tales Of A Grass Widow, is a deeply discomfiting number, sung from the point of view of a little kid who’s getting ready for her new husband. The gorgeous-looking new video, directed by Emma Freeman, turns the song into something even harder to take, simply by depicting the song’s lyrics in clear visual language. The clip shows us a little girl being wedded off to a much older man in some sort of druidic ritual, and even though it’s pretty literal, it’s way freakier than, for instance, CocoRosie’s characteristically freaky “After The Afterlife” video. Watch it below.
