Jenny Hval – “Conceptual Romance” Video (NSFW)

In about a month, the Swedish experimentalist Jenny Hval will give us her new album “Blood Bitch,” and today, she’s got a deeply unsettling and ominous video for her recent song “Conceptual Romance.” In director Zia Anger’s clip, we see a whole lot of imagery that doesn’t make a lot of narrative sense but definitely evokes a feeling of extreme dread: Women puking blood in the woods, choking on plastic sheets, wearing what might be suits of dead, naked skin. It all ends in what appears to be a mass grave. Check it out below and maybe give yourself some time to process it afterwards.

Blood Bitch is out 9/30 on Sacred Bones. See also the “Female Vampire” video.
