Later this year Norwegian singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche will release Please, inspired by a recent divorce, and now you can watch the video for its single “Bad Law.” The Evan Savitt-directed video finds Lerche at a luxurious party, which fits with the song’s initial dance-pop cheer. But just like how the chorus is interrupted by crashing drums and jagged guitar noise, it becomes apparent how alienated (and drunk) he is at this party, as his actions grow more destructive and people try harder to pretend he’s not there. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Lerche said the video is based on a real “godforsaken night” last year. Check it out below.
