After creating a work of living, breathing art in her last video, “Indestructible,” Swedish dance floor commander Robyn, who’s currently on tour with Katy Perry, takes a more stripped-down approach, dancing on her own in her brand-new video, “Call Your Girlfriend.”
Directed by Max Vitali, Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend,” off her Body Talk album, appears to be shot, incredibly, all in one take. In a stark, gorgeously lit gymnasium, Robyn approaches the gym-floor-turned-dance-floor with the focus of a seasoned gymnast approaching the mat before an Olympic floor routine. And like in her “Dancing On My Own” video (also directed by Vitali), Robyn turns the focus on her footwork, recklessly expressing the please-break-up-now imperative of song via a Rocky-esque victory dance that literally brings her to her knees. Get your girlfriend on the phone.
