Karen O’s New Video Is So Beautiful, You’ll Want to Swim in It

Coming off her Oscar nomination for "The Moon Song" from Her, Karen O realized the people have a real appetite for her singing slight, lo-fi, romantic little ditties. With that, this September, she's set to release Crush Songs, a collection of bedroom ballads she wrote and recorded in 2006 and 2007. That is exactly what you get with "Rapt," the song for which she released a video today. O's husband Barney Clay directed the colorful underwater video, with production design by Her's K.K. Barrett. The song and video together are truly dreamlike, assuming the dream is coming during a Quaalude nap.
