Martine Skogstad has directed Norwegian band Elsa & Emilie's new video for Chains of Promises, which sees young people enhabiting a hot, humid, highly atmospheric space. Shot in a large, disused warehouse dressed as a makeshift sauna, people mill in, contort in a cathartic dance and observe one another. Martine explained, "We based the concept on those nights where someone invited you to something where you know you would feel a bit out of place or alienated - you’re not sure if you're even welcome or if you want to go. You know, the stuff that’s in your head - but you still go and stay way too long."

Song Lyrics:

Can't say I did
Can't say I never will
Just take me, then we'll see

Don't know if I should try
Don't know if I'm alright
But just take me, then I'll please

'Cause I don't even care
I don't even care
I don't even care, just take me there
I don't even care
I don't even care
I don't even care, just take me there

Chains of promises, I don't even care if they are lies
Keep your fingers crossed real tight and I swear I won't mind
Oh my under the streetlights come on let's waste our time
Keep your fingers crossed tonight, I don't care if we die

Didn't say I would stay, didn't say I'd walk away
So just take me, then we'll see
Don't think I should agree, don't think I should just leave
Won't you take me then I'll plead

'Cause I don't even care
I don't even care
I don't even care, just take me there
I don't even care
I don't even care
I don't even care
Just take me there

Chains of promises, I don't even care if they are lies
Keep your fingers crossed real tight and I swear I won't mind
Oh my under the streetlights come on let's waste our time
Keep your fingers crossed tonight, I don't care if we die

Stay, no
(I'm on my way now)
Take me higher
(You can take me higher)
Stay, no
(I'm on my way now)
Take me higher
(You can take me higher)

Chains of promises, I don't even care if they are lies
Keep your fingers crossed real tight and I swear I won't mind
Oh my under the streetlights come on let's waste our time
Keep your fingers crossed tonight, I don't care if we die

(If we die)
(If we die)
(If we die)
(If we die)
