Teenage Love – “Deserted Places” video
Life is just a bowl of cherries, until they’re an accessory in your death. Teenage Love‘s music video for “Deserted Places”, from their debut EP Gold, is a mildly eerie, orchestral pop song about death. Filmed and directed by Sanne This, we see the Teenage Love ladies baking sweet treats, aiding in the sarcastic irony behind a gluttonous slob (played by Karl Wieck Davidsen), who gets killed by his sin.
I like the electro production, layered with sharp percussion, melancholy violin, bouncing “pop pop pop” vocals, and textured synth bits. Can’t forget their hauntingly sweet vocals, especially when they sing together; there’s a brief innocent-turned-growling sound in their voices towards the end, that I like, while singing “let’s forget it all!” Watch the video below!
Because live performances are cool, too, here’s Teenage Love recently performing the song live in Copenhagen. Filmed by Stinne Hannibal Jensen and Ana Navas. Edited by Mie Sofie Nielsen.
