It's smoldering shoegaze in Chinatown with Oslo group Maribel’s new video for "Pretty Nights," directed by Sondre Lerche's wife Mona Fastvold. The clip is like a date in an opium den, soundtracked to cheek-reddening effect by loose bass strings and Rebekka Von Markstein's weightless voice, all concluding in hallucinogenic, balletic sex. Shout out to living vicariously. "Pretty Nights" hails from Maribel's last LP, Reveries, out now on Splendour.
