As directed by visual artist Jonas Bjerre (who also fronts the Danish Alt/ Rock band MEW) Agnes Obel's video for her single Golden Green from the upcoming album Citizen Of Glass is a mesmerizing other worldly vision. Agnes Obel's evocative singing with her vocal chords resonating more like an instrument than a vehicle for speech pitches and stretches the words into amazing places making the lyrics almost sound like another language. This style only draws you in more to decipher the poetry.
Bjerre's fantastical imagining feels equally alien. You see what appears to be creatures made of light and alien worlds. Haunting yet gentle beings with almost mouse like heads. If this was a trailer for a movie, this is a movie I would WANT to see. Of the project Bjerre said,
"I was honored to take on the task of making a video for this beautiful song. The bells that emphasize the rhythm through the song, for some reason they made me think of blinking lights, and glass- glass being a recurring theme in Agnes's new songs. As she told me more about the song, I stared having ideas for some kind of internal world, maybe a world inside someone's head, where various thoughts and feelings are in opposition, depicted as animated versions of Agnes struggling to find harmony."
