New video for ‘Half Life’ from gritty dance-pop duo Smerz (XL Recordings)

Smerz are on a roll at the tail end of 2017, with their second new track and video released in as many months.

Premiered on their NTS show, Catharina and Henriette’s new track ‘Half life’ continues the duo’s penchant for minimalist beats and R&B vocals.

Watch the video here:

The video was produced and directed by Smerz, and as with all Smerz music, the track was produced, programmed and sung entirely by the Norwegian duo. The video is an off-kilter version of those classic R&B music videos.
