Slim Twig "Hover on a Sliver (Repulsion Revisited)" (video)
Published Dec 11, 2014Is Slim Twig's fantastic Hound at the Hem album as freaky as filmmaker Roman Polanski's horror-thriller classic Repulsion? You'll have to make that call for yourself by spinning Slim's new video for "Hover on a Sliver," subtitled Repulsion Revisited for good reason.
As you'll see down below, the video for the skewed, organ-heavy baroque-pop number stars a night-gowned, Catherine Deneuve-type engaging in activities such as sketching portraits of Slim Twig, assuming a crouched fetal position in the living room, and jumping rope in a courtyard. It's all a bit unsettling, though perhaps not as much as the psychological terror of the source material.
