Solvej Schou announced her first video, “Flicker Away,” from her new full-band album, Quiet for Too Long, which was released in June.

“The song ‘Flicker Away’ is short, punk, and blunt,’ she says. “It’s about experiencing invisibility, anxiety, and depression as a woman and breaking out of that in an unapologetic and forceful way. My favorite color is red, and I wanted to harness the power of that color for this music video. I’m wearing a red jumpsuit and red earrings. The background is red. I’m wearing political buttons that speak my truth. I’m looking at you head-on. My hair is wild, and I’m moving wildly. My skin and hair aren’t confined by archetype. This is what it means to me to be a feminist. To be yourself, no matter how angry or sad, wild or calm, you are. Amazing director Ted Newsome immediately knew what I was going for and captured that moment of breaking out of your shell and shouting your existence to the world.”
