Sharon Van Etten – “Our Love” Video

By Tom Breihan / July 14, 2014

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.
