Scandinavian singer Katrín Andrésdóttir, better known as Special-K, has treated us to some visuals for her mellow record, “Her Flowers”. With the singer previously belonging to all-female Icelandic hip-hop band Reykjavikurdaetur, the normcore-style video, shot in her native Iceland, walks us through the quotidian life of a toddler: having dinner, playing with a dog twice her size, and generally being adorable.
The toddler’s interactions with various family members and elders and a large part of the video’s narrative and, speaking on the video, the singer said: “It is about realising that even though your relationship with a parent can be dysfunctional and complicated, their love for you is still overwhelmingly unconditional. I made the video in collaboration with my friend and fellow member of Reykjavíkurdætur, Kolfinna Nikulásdóttir and her fiancé Sigurður Möller Sívertsen. It’s shot in their home, where four generations of women are living together; her grandmother, her mother, herself and her daughter. The video is sort of a portrait of their everyday life together.”
Filled with sirenic, dreamy vocals and stripped back, isolated instrumental backing, the song provides the video with a perfect soundtrack, and is a fittingly emotional conclusion to the the artist’s experimental visual EP, “Diet Breakfast”, out November 2nd.
