Frankie Rose Swims at Night in “Night Swim” Video

Frankie Rose’s latest album Interstellar is a fantastic collection of ’80s inspired dream-pop that’s rather dark in tone. In the found-footage-esque video for “Night Swim,” Rose continues that vibe by following a woman who (appropriately) goes for a swim … at night. But it’s not just a few laps to work on her backstroke. Instead, it’s the kind of night swim where you’re fully dressed and after submerging yourself, apparitions of possible friends and/or ghouls start popping up. Any similarities to R.E.M.’s “Nightswimming” are purely intentional. We think. [Pitchfork]
