"Last year I spent a few months in the heat of L.A.," Oh Land tells Spinner. "After watching a beautiful sunset in Griffith Park, I thought to myself: 'Just stay down, sun. I've had enough; I wanna live in darkness.' And that became the metaphor for a love relationship.

Of course, all this comes from a girl from Denmark where, in the summer months, the sun never really seems to go away completely.

Except, perhaps, in this undeniably alluring and original video that she says was filmed in the "beautiful landscape of Oh Land." We're not arguing with that. Check it out below.
