This is the first single from Swedish avant-garde pop star Jenny Wilson's new album Exorcism, and the animated video by the Swedish animator Gustaf Holtenäs is a delicately illustrated and, on the face of it, aesthetically pleasing piece. But it also contains true horror.

The album details Wilson’s life following her experiencing a horrific sexual assault not long after recovering from treatment for breast cancer. Holtenäs's video draws the viewer in with alluring visuals, but ultimately does not flinch from the subject.
