Taken from her forthcoming third album Feed the Fire, out January 22nd via the ever brilliant Bella Union label, Promise and the Monster – aka Stockholm’s Billie Lindahl, has released a new video for ‘Time of the Season’. It’s a complex and dark pop record, driven by this repetitive and bewitching backing, swirling around the feet of the sweet melody draped over the top, as Lindahl muses on the dangers of falling for the wrong people.
Speaking about the video, she says “I had this idea that I wanted to make a video with a lot of people in it, in a dark room. And that a tension would grow as they move and come closer to each other and the camera. At first I wanted to have professional dancers in the video, but there was no time and no budget, so I just asked everybody I knew if they wanted to participate.. On the recording day the sun was shining and the weather was so nice – the one single day of sunshine in Stockholm this year – so I was afraid nobody would show up, but luckily like ten people came, and they were all magnificent.”
