Karen O submerges herself for “Rapt” music video

Garbed in a glinting red dress and floating idly like a starfished porcelain doll, Karen O (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs fame) drifts along in the waterlogged video for “Raft”, a simply-made, yet cutthroat track from her Crush Songs album. Moments like “off went the switch / love is soft / love’s a fucking bitch” paradox perfectly, idealizing a temporal state of love that feels 100% that of Mrs. Orzelek.

Due out September 9th in America under the Cult label – yes, the very one started by Julian Casablancas (of The Strokes fame) – Crush Songs will receive a day earlier dispersal in the U.K. Much (if not all) of the album is said to be lo-fi bedroom recordings slated around moments of her younger years and the times of immense heartbreak which unfolded. Ironically, her current husband Barney Clay directed the “Raft” video.
