Knee-high platform boots, slicked hair and broken records; all these collide to create a sexy yet eerie vibe in the brand spanking new video from Sweden’s latest alternative chanteuse, Karin Park. We featured Restless about a month ago (along with its killer Ladytron Remix) and are happy to report that the blazing new video captures the esoteric essence of the song beautifully, not to mention it features a nod (at least in our eyes) to one of our most beloved and memorable video of the 80s; Yaz‘s Don’t Go. We grow Restless as the video premieres one week before the long-awaited release of her new album, Highwire Poetry.
If you are a fan of Fever Ray and The Knife, we think you are going to get all worked up over Restless, the new single by Swedish goth-poptastic artist, Karen Park, who incorporates the Fever Ray template, but makes it slightly more accessible (re: poptastic). This connection extends, however, past the obvious similarities in vocals and tone. Restless was produced by Barry Barnett and Christoffer Berg, the same guys behind Fever Ray and The Knife. Although not well-known (yet) outside of Scandinavia, Karin Park’s profile has risen substantially in her native homeland as she has amassed two Norwegian Grammys and has toured with Azari & III and SBTRKT. We are also including the dreamy and funky Ladytron! mix. The single is due out at the end of next month.
