If I Had a Heart

For the first video from Karin Dreijer's Fever Ray project, nothing less than creepy will do, and she doesn't disappoint on "If I Had a Heart." Besides the ominous string arrangements and eerie choral chants, we also get two kids and a torch floating down a black lake before the video cuts to an interior scene that could easily function as the set of a gothic horror flick. Andreas Nilsson—who regularly collaborates with The Knife for visuals—directed the video. (via P4K.tv)

incredible song.especially with a good sound set up that will show off the track's bass/barritone. Video doesnt do enough for it.Not sweeping enough,or at least,exploratory enough.Song outweighs the video content.That being said,the water shots are ok and a few small segments of the interior sweeps.This video director has talent,just not showing it fully.
