Video Premiere: Sondre Lerche’s ‘Domino’
A view of the suburbs directed by the singer's wife
Norwegian pop-smith Sondre Lerche named his record label after his wife, Mona. For the below clip for single “Domino,” she sat in the director’s chair, cutting between downcast shots of Mr. Lerche prowling the suburbs and footage of a group of young girls at home somewhere nearby. It’s moody, it’s downcast, it boasts a few shades of Eugenides in ways you might have seen before. But stick around for everything to come unhinged just as Lerche takes off on that nasty, ill-tempered solo in the coda. It’s one hell of a monument to marital teamwork.
