See the official music video by Of Monsters and Men performing “Wild Roses”, a track from the band’s latest album, ‘Fever Dream’ out now.
Lead singer Nanna said:
“‘Wild Roses’ shows an introverted side to the album and is inspired by what it is like to lean into your sadness. We wanted to capture that feeling in a performance for the music video while bringing out a bit of uneasiness as well. So we brought on choreographer Stella Rosenkranz to help create the movements you see.
We also knew that we wanted to shoot the video in water with a bit of blood. To achieve this, director Þóra Hilmars immediately came to mind. We had talked about working together for years and knew she would be perfect for a scandi horror inspired music video. The video was shot in a span of 12 hours in a beautiful and eerie swimming pool in Hafnaförður, Iceland, hours before going to the airport and starting our Fever Dream tour. We’re very happy with the outcome and are truly excited to share this with everyone.”
