Our Broken Garden Combines With John Grant On ‘Rain’

Check out the evocative new video...

Our Broken Garden combines with John Grant on new song ‘Rain’.

A songwriter of real majesty and grace, Our Broken Garden’s Anna Brønsted seems able to channel pure emotion. Her work carries immense power, acting as a conduit for sometimes difficult experiences, and often darker emotions.

New album ‘Blind’ is wonderful, the returning of an enchanting talent after a lengthy absence. The dreamiest of pop music, her evocative, alluring way with melody is matched to lyrical invention that hammers down on raw nerve endings.

The Danish songwriter pairs with Bella Union labelmate John Grant on album highlight ‘Rain’, a truly magical piece of work. Their voices intertwine effortlessly, and reach for the heavens in act of breathtaking ablution.

We’re able to share the full video for ‘Rain’, which pairs Our Broken Garden’s Anna Brønsted and John Grant against stop-motion collages which Anna crafted herself.

There’s a sense of other-worldly Victoriana to the hand-cut scenery, which doffs its cap to Our Broken Garden’s fascination with the sub-conscious.

Anna Brønsted says…

“One chilly day in March, John Grant came down from Iceland to Copenhagen to film the video for ‘Rain’ with me. John and I have been connecting via email over the years and I have always felt a warm bond with him, so it was a great pleasure to finally meet him in person. My dear friend and highly skilled filmmaker, Tine Reingaard, made us both feel relaxed in her presence. We had a lovely day with lots of laughs, wrapping up with delightful talks and dinner at my home. Subsequently, I dedicated countless hours crafting stop-motion animations using hand-cut paper collages, integrating them with the filmed footage. The process took forever, but I am genuinely content with the outcome.”
