Icelanding post-punk trio Kælan Mikla return with a stunning new video for the hypnotic Ósýnileg, their second new song since 2018’s critically acclaimed album, Nótt eftir nótt. It follows Sólstöður, which came out in April of this year.
The clip, directed by Arna Beth, is a gorgeous series of landscapes, many from the perspective of a small creature, ranging from the icy chill of winter to the splendour of opening flowers in spring. It is a mind-blowing testament to the wonders of nature, paired perfectly with the ethereal, mystical vocals sung in Icelandic.
The song is a primal pop dirge, reverberating with primeval rhythms and lyrical incantations that flow like mist under the moonlit night.
