Sally Shapiro, Swede pop’s most mysterious duo, has us completely enchanted by their latest album, Somewhere Else. In fact, we were pretty much hooked on Sally and producer Johan Agebjorn‘s brand of mesmerizing, lush synthpop thanks to Shapiro’s 2006 debut, Disco Romance, and its follow-up, 2009’s My Guilty Pleasure.

So consider us Italo-tickled to premiere the video for the latest single off Somewhere Else, “If It Doesn’t Rain.” The clip features the handy work of director Iris Beatrix, who edited footage of a Czech cartoon from 1953 so that the visual perfectly fit with the song’s aesthetic.

As Sally and Johan put it, “We happened to watch this old Czech cartoon from the ’50s and thought it would fit perfectly to ‘If It Doesn’t Rain ‘ — it has the same chilly feel and it asks the same question as the lyrics in the song: are they really made for each other? So we asked the music video director/editor Iris Beatrix, who earlier made fan videos of ‘Hold Me So Tight’,’ Spacer Woman From Mars’ and ‘Deeper Space Woman’, if she could edit the cartoon to fit the song, she did, and we are really happy with the result.”

Watch above, and let us know below what you think of Sally’s latest charming music video. Then go check out the rest of the album here.
