Sapphic suggestiveness from Danish outfit Fagget Fairys captured in lively fashion by Sigrid Astrup.

Sigrid's conceptual approach and homemade aesthetic graced an excellent video for Of Montreal last year. This is a bit more pop (in a CSS-style fashion), and here she pretty much did everything as well - including costumes and choreography and interesting diffused video look.

Oh, and now I know what feeding the horse means, visiting Lee Valley riding stables will never be the same again...

Sigrid Astrup on making the video for Fagget Fairys' Feed The Horse

"This is the dance video I have wanted to make for years. When I met the duo Fagget Fairys for the first time in their art-studio-garage, they said 'Yeah Girl!' when I suggested dance moves the-way-only-a-girl-can-do-it, from start to finish (listen to that beat - its a given).

"So we went on a two month ride together, with everything from the royal ballet ensemble, to Carla C's indescribably hot firedance moves.

"This is what came out in the other end... a simple idea with lots of love, unpretentious moves and a booty shake that could tip a house."
