Shot mostly in a British strip club, EDM artist Calvin Harris’ “Sweet Nothing” video, with its performance by Florence Welch as one of the club’s unraveling performers, is supremely uncomfortable. In the clip, which was directed by Vincent Haycock (Spiritualized, MSTRKRFT), she and Harris are seen together in flashbacks, though the actual plotline itself is a bit unclear. There’s women in underwear, Welch breaking down and some heated tempers. Not much is resolved by the end of the video, story-wise, but it’s clear that all is not well.
Calvin Harris’ new album, 18 Months, comes out October 29 via Fly Eye and Columbia Records.
