There’s so many moving parts to Robyn’s new video for her La Bagatelle Magique project’s track “Love Is Free” that I’m not really exactly what’s going on, but I do know all of it is very enticing. It starts out with Robyn and featured guest Maluca hanging around in bed and drinking some tea, but it quickly expands in scope to go behind-the-scenes of the music video itself, then to whatever funhouse Robyn and director SSION decided to construct. There’s an elaborate kitchen preparation with a bunch of men in worksuits, a subtitled breakup scene, and a fly that just won’t seem to go away. Plus some classic Robyn spin-dancing!
“I loved working with SSION on this video,” Robyn said in a press release. The thoughts Maluca, Markus, and I had about how to materialise ‘Love Is Free’ seemed to find a perfect place in Cody’s fantastic world. Flesh and paint and dreams, both good ones and bad ones.”
