Amalie Bruun, a.k.a. Myrkur, is set to release her sophomore album Mareridt this Friday, September 12th, via Relapse. In anticipation of its arrival, the Danish multi-instrumentalist has shared a performance video for "Funeral," a collaboration with California singer-guitarist Chelsea Wolfe which appears on the upcoming LP. The layered, black-and-white visual was filmed in a Las Vegas hotel room, with the city lights shimmering behind them. Its brightly lit backdrop and minimal instrumentation — Bruun plays the nyckelharpa, a traditional scandanavian folk instrument, while Wolfe strums the guitar — builds at an interesting contrast between the song's plodding, contemplative brain, and its barren, beautiful heart. Watch now.
For another stripped-down take from Amalie Bruun, check out Myrkur's take on King Diamond's "Welcome Home," from our new video series "No Distortion," below. Also, stay tuned for Wolfe's new album Hiss Spun, due out September 22nd via Sargent House.
