Smerz‘s new tracks, “I don’t talk about that much” and “Hva hvis,” are out now on XL Recordings.
Following up from their Believer trailer, Norwegian duo Smerz (Henriette Motzfeldt + Catharina Stoltenberg) have unveiled an amazing Benjamin Barron-directed video featuring two new tracks, “I don’t talk about that much” and “Hva hvis”.
Inspired by Lars von Trier’s Dogville, the hypnotic, trance-like video features the two artists and a group of dancers performing a traditional Norwegian folk dance called Hallingdansen. “The stage and the actions have a kind of dreamlike state to them where not everything is completely filled out, but hopefully there’s this glimpse into a world and a bigger narrative,” explained Stoltenberg. We still have no full details about the nature of the project Believer, but it’s a safe bet to say that Smerz‘s debut album is on the way.
