The wait for Seinabo Sey is finally over! This week marked the US release of the striking singer's highly-anticipated debut EP, For Madeline. As if that alone wasn’t Bounce-Worthy news, the Swedish singer-songwriter also debuted the video for the album’s third single, “Pistols at Dawn.”
Ms. Sey might be a relative newcomer, but she certainly knows how to make a visual statement like a pro. Her two previous videos (“Younger,” “Hard Time”) were bold presentations, and her latest masterpiece is no different. The captivating visuals, directed by Christian Larson, immediately arrest your attention with its stark imagery. Seinabo is a cinematic vision in red, a rubescent goddess against the backdrop of a barren forest. The crimson ensemble -- designed by award-winning Swedish fashion designer, Ida Klamborn (who also created the black and white couture featured in “Hard Time”) -- is mysterious and breathtaking, much like Seinabo’s vocals. As she roams the bleak terrain, we soon learn that she is not alone. A red ally appears and the drama increases as they attempt to evade a masked adversary. Who will be left standing? Check out the curiously stunning visuals below to find out.
Once you’ve seen the video, get your digital trigger finger ready and go download For Madeline right now on iTunes. Lucky Bouncers in NYC, LA and San Francisco will have the opportunity to see Seinabo Sey perform live this week and next. Check the dates and venues right here.
