Jena Malone Seduces in Kevin Morby’s Hawaiian ‘Harlem River’ Video

Kevin Morby splits his time between playing bass with Woods and co-fronting the Babies with (now former Vivian Girl) Cassie Ramone. Somehow, the Kansas City native also found time to start a solo career with last year’s Harlem River, and film a new music video for the album’s spare, sashaying title track. The fuzzy clip features direction from Adarsha Benjamin and stars actress Jena Malone, who dances the hula while wearing lingerie and a trench coat. As seen above, the whole video has a tropical atmosphere — more Hawaii than Harlem — and plays out like a feverish, weekend-long tryst, the kind where the outside world melts further and further away with each passing hour.
