D//E Premiere: Mavourneen: Bliss // Video

We were introduced to the gritty shoegaze and post punk noisiness that is Bliss, the first single by Danish up and comers, Mavourneen, through the band's live session at Tapetown from last year. Recorded in Sonic Youth's studios in New York, the studio version of the track will be part of Mavourneen's forthcoming EP, done in collaboration with Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) on drums, Jared Artaud (Alan Vega, The Vacant Lots) handling the production, and Grammy award winner, Ted Young, as technician.

Bliss now comes with a fascinating, aesthetically bold black and white visual, directed, edited and filmed by Malthe Folke Ivarsson, and streaming for the first time ever right below.

"From my view Bliss is written from a feeling of visceral consumption," the band's own, Hans Gustav Björklund Moulvad, speaks to D//E about the song. "A mix between greedily consuming another and feeling yourself dissolving simultaneously. Bliss has a sort of manic nerve that Steve expresses incredibly with his unrelenting and abrasive drumming which is a force of nature in it self."

The clips's director, Malthe Ivarsson, comments about his vision for the just unveiled video: "With the video for Bliss I tried to work with the pace of the song to create something that in its form would resemble more of a piece of poetry rather than tell a story, fragmented and strong in its symbols.

"I wanted the visual language to resemble my interpretation of the song. On the first glance brutal, but in the details so very beautiful. A captivating kind of beautiful that’s somehow too much, maybe even slightly sickening, like the smell of rotting fruit in the late summer."
