The anonymous artist known as comfort_ has released a dark and bold music video for The Painter, a single from the grand-yet-intimate 2012 LP Watch Out Lover from Norwegian pop-classical-electronic act Heartfelt.
Dark and so very Nordic, the video comfort_ created for The Painter is both uncomfortable and aesthetically beautiful and features vocals from the lovely singer Jenny Hval.
Brede Rørstad, the man pulling the musical strings behind Heartfelt, claims no connection to the mysterious comfort_. “The video was in its entirety made by comfort_,” he told me, “and I actually had nothing to do with the making of it.”
Whatever the story is behind the _comfort and Heartfelt collaboration, the music video for The Painter breathes life into the brilliant LP Watch Out Lover. That’s a win for fans of Heartfelt.
