Danish singer/producer Fjer is back with her video for ‘Better,’ another gem of dark electro R&B. ‘Better’ is a seductive ballad which combines shimmering synths with honey-sweet chorus and a deep, sexy bass-line. The lyrics mourn a lost love and question how different things might have been, if only…
The Aarhus-native released this follow up to ‘Her Turn‘ earlier this month and the video, co-directed with Peter Anthony Red, encompasses a more stripped back, vulnerable aesthetic for the singer. It does however maintain that distinct Fjer style – the fuzzy, VHS glitches, for instance, seem to be a favourite effect of hers. The viewer focuses on her face, all wide-eyes and wet hair as she performs against the backdrop of a steamy bathroom. Coloured smoke fills the room as she sings to camera and she seems to be haunted by a mysterious figure dressed in black. It is all slightly unsettling but undeniably mesmerising.
‘Better’ is available now on iTunes. Her debut album is set to drop later this year on QUINTIC records. Catch the video below:
