Sharon Van Etten - "Our Love" video

Sharon Van Etten’s new video for “Our Love,” a song from her recent album Are We There, is an intimate and sexy kind of thing — almost entirely in black-and-white, shot in that soft morning light, with tons of implied humping. We see SVE and a companion waking up together, but we only see hands brushing ankles or tattoos in extreme close-up, all of it languid and inviting. The video follows clips for the Are We There songs “Taking Chances” and “Every Time The Sun Comes Up,” and it leaves a deeper impression than either of those. On a Monday morning, it’s a helpful reminder that you’d be having a better day if you’d just decided to stay in bed. Karen Collins directs; watch it below.

Are We There is out now on Jagjaguwar.

  1. i wish my make up looks perfect when i emerge from water :(

  2. that last scene is heart-wrenching

  3. One of my favorite tracks off the album. To me it seems almost like a slight foreshadow of what Van Etten can do if she decides to try to embrace pop more, even if its their a tinge of sadness to it. The production on this song is beautiful and the video simple and effective, much like Van Ettens work. Love love love
