Kristen Stewart has lent her acting talent to a new music video for the indie band Interpol, and it’s every bit as enigmatic as the actress herself. The song, “If You Really Love Nothing,” is the third single off the band’s forthcoming sixth studio album, “Marauder.” Interpol’s last studio album, “El Pintor,” came out in 2014. “Marauder” will be released on August 24 from Matador Records.
In the newly-released video, Stewart plays a trouble-making party girl who sneaks into a club and proceeds to make out with every guy in the place (no women — this time). She arrives with a tuxedo-clad gentleman, played by “La La Land” star Finn Wittrock, who slowly unravels as he loses her attention.
Directed by Hala Matar, the club is dimly lit in red, and the camera seems always one step behind Stewart. A Bahraini filmmaker working in Los Angeles, Matar has directed shorts for Vice, Nowness and fashion brands including Chanel, Kenzo, and Vivienne Westwood. Her 2013 short for Diesel, “Streetcar,” stars Chloë Sevigny as a Blanche Dubois-inspired pin-up girl.
