Shocking people in 2016 is really hard. Getting people's attention is even harder. Considering Gen Y's basic introduction to pop culture now includes force-fed exposure to wonderfully twisted and deranged shit like 2girls1cup and the tragic, horsecock-based demise of Mr.Hands (links purposely not included, it's Monday, people, jeez. Google at your own peril)​, it's just a little trickier to combine context with graphic imagery and actually stir up some kind of emotional response in the average media-binger.

In the latest OMG-I-Can't-Look-Away News, Copenhagen noise-rockers The Entrepreneurs​ have seen fit to bless us with this wonderfully lewd new video, directed by Jesper Dalgaard. "When Jesper presented the idea to us, I was very touched. I think it's a really beautiful way to showcase love," says guitar man Anders Hvass about the "Ombre" video, in which two elderly gentlemen basically enjoy a blood-drenched make-out sesh to the tune of the three-piece's latest noise rock anthem.​ "The thought behind (the video) is that it supports our universe by showing both the beauty and the intensity of love."

"Ombre" is from The Entrepreneurs' critically acclaimed​ debut EP 'Tony Rominger' that dropped back in spring. It's soaring, uncompromising rock and roll, with lead singer Mathias Bertelsen providing a vocal vastness that could also work with a more synth-laden, dream poppy backdrop​ – if to a radically different degree of sonic satisfaction. But coupled with the naughty noise-guitars and unrelenting drums of The Entrepreneurs, it becomes the unique brand of romantic punk that has warranted the three long-haired Danish gentlemen's appearance at back-to-back Roskilde Festivals, and cemented them as one of the more exciting acts to keep tabs on in Danish rock. ​
