ELLIPHANT – The video features Elephants, Fire-Eaters, and three strong local women. It was shot in Pakistan within only one day! Spooning tells the story of two people sharing intimacy and the playful video shows the strength and independence of Elliphant and her new friends from Pakistan, fooling around and living life to the max.
ASTRID S. – The video for Running Out shows two musicians at work, capturing a moment of fragility. No effects and no tricks, just the voice and the piano. The Black & White video supports the simplistic approach and let’s the performance talk for itself.
JI NILSSON – It seems like a romantic travel documentation but the melancholic song Nothing puts it into a completely different mood. With colourful and intense pictures the video recreates the feeling of being stuck between longing and trying to forget a love that has gone.
TUNGEVAAG & RAABAN – A boombastic video for the Norwegian/Swedish dance track Wolf. Red Moons, meteorites, northern lights – the video balances on the edge between apocalyptic dance video and nature documentation.
AURORA – Her song Through The Eyes Of A Child is calm, yet powerful and so is the video. Aurora’s singing is wonderful but her eyes really tell the story! They show happiness, sadness, hope, desire, a huge spectrum of feelings. And not to forget, all in one single shot!
LÉON – The video for Tired Of Talking is an unpretentious karaoke video master piece. It has a major 60’s vibe (when did we ever see an animated telephone with a rotary dial?) and gives us a possibility to sing along with this catchy retro indie pop song.
MEW – Enigmatic, scary and slow motion describe the video for Water Slides best. The dark and tensed atmosphere is created with intense close-ups of painted faces, the surprising editing and of course Mew’s mysterious song.
UNGE FERRARI – The young Norwegian artist goes soul searching. The video for Bedre shows him travelling through buddhist temples, urban skylines and subtropic jungles. Dynamic editing, muddy filters and the pink hair-do make this a raw music video with a dash of swag.
MARIT BERGMAN – This wonderful video could be part of a modern version of the movie ‘Six Bullerbü Children’ and the song is the perfect soundtrack for it. Marit Bergman creates with that video a wonderful yet sometimes not so childish Swedish summertime memory for kids.
