Jenny Hval (@jennyhval) Announces Tour | Watch “Female Vampire” Video‏

Norwegian artist Jenny Hval will release her new album, Blood Bitch, on September 30th via Sacred Bones. Co-produced with noise producer Lasse Marhaug, Blood Bitch is “an investigation of blood. Blood that is shed naturally. The white and red toilet roll chain which ties together the virgins, the whores, the mothers, the witches, the dreamers, and the lovers.” It is Hval’s most fictional yet most personal album.

In conjunction with a North American tour announcement (all dates are below), Jenny Hval now introduces the video for the album’s debut single, “Female Vampire.” Directed by Jenny Berger Myhre, shot an iPhone and starring Hval and her friends, the video nods to the low budget horror sexploitation films of the late 70s and early 80’s from which the album was inspired.

As Jenny Hval explains, “What does eternity feel like? How do you ‘live’ when there is no death? Usually, the vampire is depicted as a lonesome, all-knowing and ancient creature combining violence, aggressive sexuality and deceitful youth. The pack behind the video for ‘Female Vampire’ wanted to explore vampiric eternity in a different narrative: in a group of romancing friends. The vampire friends move through their hometown of Oslo, partaking in public and private rituals of moving together. We also wanted to combine ideas from old vampire trash movies and modern trashy iPhone videos, resulting in an enigmatic world of time-lapse like slow motion where everything is always moving, or moving on. Not there, or not there yet.”
