Lykke Li has joined forces with Miike Snow (members Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg), producer Jeff Bhasker, and Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John to form a supergroup they call LIV. The Swedish forces dropped their first track “Wings of Love” last month, and have now followed it up with a new music video.

The film, directed by Li, is colorful and heavily seventies-tinged. Scenes of naked people running through the woods (reminiscent of photographer Ryan McGinley’s continuing body of work) are juxtaposed by psychedelic illustrations (painted by Malin Gabriella Nordin). The video is a welcome new step in Lykke Li’s career, which has been characterized by her moodier sounds and black-and-white aesthetic.
