Not satisfied with getting you chair dancing, Little Scream is introducing the world to bed dancing (mattress dancing?) Premiering today is the official music video for “Dark Dance,” the third track on this year’s Cult Following and the second to get the video treatment following the first single “Love as a Weapon.”
The video below sets a scene that seems peaceful and serene. Although there is something almost unsettling in the dancers’ movements that suggest something isn’t quite right. They move in jerky yet fluid motions that form the perfect counterpoint and accompaniment to Little Scream’s haunting, melodic vocals.
If the video isn’t enough Little Scream for you, she’ll be playing a number of shows in the coming weeks, including three shows at the end of the month with American indie-folk darlings Beirut. Don’t miss your chance. Check the show listing below.
