"In Your Arms (Final Fantasy)" (video)
The clip comes as the newly renamed band rebrand themselves as a multimedia project, and stars Rahbek's childhood friend Louis Toro, an Icelander who spent time in Denmark before moving to Peru and becoming a stripper. The vid features a series of sensual shots of the bare-chested, tattooed Toro flexing and giving a grinding lap dance as Vår's electro love ballad plays in the background. The clip also splices in some scenic highway shots.
Rahbek explained that Toro has now been entwined into the project as their muse.
"Toro is the best living image of what we try to achieve with our music," he told Pitchfork. "After years of being apart, it was obvious that we needed him in everything [Vår] will do from this day onward. In a sense Toro is Vår more than we can ever be. We both kind of fell in love with him."
Vår are expected to drop a full-length early next year.
