Maribel | Pretty Nights (Video)
The Oslo-based quartet Maribel have a new video out for new video out now for their song, “Pretty Nights”, from off “Reveries”, an LP out via Splendour. The sound of “Pretty Night” is languid, dreamlike, elongated like a night after a handful of barbiturates. Rebekka Von Markstein’s pretty voice is the antidote to the dark, celestial, shadowy underlying music. The video was directed by Sondre Lerche’s wife, videographer and actress Mona Fastvold. Follow Maribel at facebook. You can also read an archived Their Bated Breath post about Maribel here: “‘Reveries’ (is) a tantalizing album that exists somewhere amid the realms of film noir, fantasy fever dream, and the strange allure of David Lynch.” Note: Photo is a captured image from the video. On side note, I swear that must be an image of actress Lizabeth Scott on the cover of “Reveries”. Just another reason to respect this band’s artist choices. — David D. Robbins Jr.
