Watch: Grizzly Bear’s ‘Mourning Sound’ Video Is An Ode to Women’s Rights

Prepare for butts

Grizzly Bear have shared a-semi NSFW video for “Mourning Sound” to YouTube this morning.

Singer Ed Droste posted to Instagram, saying their new video “is an ode to womens’ rights through the interplay of time, space and light.” The new video stars Clemence Poesy, better known for her role as Fleur Delacour Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & 2.

Ed Droste wrote the following on the “Mourning Sound” video:

“MORNING SOUND’s video concept stems from Leonard Cohen’s famous quote: “Ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering, There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”. It is about finding freedom and keeping it by becoming and staying united. It is a message for people who are going through hardships, who have been told that they can’t, that they are too different, that they are not good enough, that there is no more hope.”

Grizzly Bear’s new album Mourning Sound comes out this Friday, August 18th. Watch the video below:

New video starring @c_poesy_ (Harry Potter!) and directed by @beatricepegard out now! It endlessly makes me smile and hope it has the same effect for you! A word from the creator (link in bio) "But aren't present times actually dystopian? MORNING SOUND is an ode to womens’ rights through the interplay of time, space and light. We transposed Grizzly Bear’s nostalgic song about grieving to wider relationships with society and with the world by following women from all ages and backgrounds in various environments, getting together with a little bit of magic. MORNING SOUND’s video concept stems from Leonard Cohen’s famous quote: “Ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering, There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”. It is about finding freedom and keeping it by becoming and staying united. It is a message for people who are going through hardships, who have been told that they can’t, that they are too different, that they are not good enough, that there is no more hope. MORNING SOUND’s video also carries a message for women to know that whatever happens, they will never be alone, that there is a sister out there secretly rooting for them, and that they have power and freedom within that no one will ever be able to take away from them. When things are tough and feel hopeless, there will always be someone out there thinking of you, fighting for you and believing in you. Nobody, under any circumstance, will ever be able to take the power of love and unison that we all carry intrinsically."
