Cat Velez - 4th May 2016

Olof Lindh establishes a retro feel for Foxes' new video for Cruel, as the pop star roams a country house while plugged into a classic Sony Walkman, performing the song while taking random revenge on the possessions of a boyfriend who's done her wrong.

It's a performance video which mixes whimsical little moments with more serious, emotional ones, fashioned out of a French New Wave-style spontaneity and nonchalance. It's an aesthetic befitting of Foxes’ sweet quirkiness.
