Frankie Rose – Red Museum | Music Video


Imagine going to a museum and having part of the display grab, strip, and bury you in red plastic. That’s the kind of feeling you get from Frankie Rose‘s experimental new video for “Red Museum”.


According to Rose, “‘Red Museum’ is a love song. It is a portrait of the kind of fearful thoughts that can run through a person’s head upon the possibility of caring for another person”. I didn’t interpret that from the visuals, and I don’t know if that was the intent or not, but that’s what art is all about in my eyes – unique perception.


The video actually reminds me of an exhibition piece that would fit well at London’s Tate Modern museum; either by showcasing the objects seen in the video, or having a reenactment of the video itself. Either way, it makes for very interesting – and somewhat unnerving – viewing. Stereogum calls it “wistfully creepy”, and I couldn’t agree more.


There isn’t full-frontal nudity in the video, but there is a bit of butt towards the end. If you’re not phased by that prospect, enjoy “Red Museum” below:



“Red Museum” is lifted from Rose’s upcoming album Cage Tropical which will be available from August 11. Pre-order here.
