Norwegian singer Tone Damli is driving too fast through the forest at night - and fiddling with the car radio - when the car hits something.
First Aid Kit 'Rebel Heart' by Mats Udd
Mats Udd latest collaboration with First Aid Kit employs the visual techniques, scenarios and lighting of '70s horror movies of the Dario Argento variety. But Udd opts to use these stylistic tropes for the purpose of creating mystery and atmosphere rather than sheer terror.
With an all-female cast dabbling with the occult, it's only a mattter of time before something supernatural happens. Ultimately the setting serves the personalities and harmonies of the Söderberg sisters performing the plaintive Rebel Heart.
"We wanted to create a dreamy and mysterious world. It's an homage to old '70s horror films and the aesthetics of that era. Rebel Heart was written in the desert after a night of experimenting with an Oujia Board and other occult-themed board games. We thought the video should reflect that.
"It's a song about identity and femininity. It's about the destroyer we all have inside of us, that dark force that wants to take over. We wanted to only feature women in the video - the red moon represents a sense of Sisterhood."
