Sisyphus – “Take Me” Video (NSFW)

By Tom Breihan / May 1, 2014

Sisyphus is Sufjan Stevens’s new art-pop trio with kinda-unlikely collaborators Son Lux and Serengeti, and Stevens seems to be using it as a way to cut loose. Consider, if you will, the “Booty Call” video, a strange piece of party-rap pastiche that threw Sufjan and Serengeti into a room full of girls making out. The new video for the mellow and seductive “Take Me” isn’t as silly as that, but it does have Sufjan singing amidst dancing, mostly-naked bodies, something we might not have imagined that guy doing a few years ago. Ryan Dickie directed the prettily-shot video, full of slants of light and artful editing. Check it out below.

Sisyphus’s self-titled album is out now on Asthmatic Kitty.
