VIDEO: Late Spring Morning Sunlight (Ghost Lake)

22 May

Swedish indie act Ghost Lake have released the video to Late Spring Morning Sunlight, the first single from the EP of the same name. Quiet, understated and surprisingly catchy – there’s no questioning that the song is a grower. The perfect soundtrack to lazy summer (or spring) days lounging around with grass marks on the back of your legs, Ghost Lake haven’t reinvented the wheel but it’s still a pleasant listen.

The video has a quirky surrealism – monster masks and slowed apartment dancing seem almost at odds with the laidback sound of the single.

Marie Herdensjö, the dance choreographer for the video, said she was inspired by the “crazy feelings of unrequited love” and the exaggerated story telling of the lyrics.

“It’s a Gondry-esque zombie outbreak, at its early stages, where people are still hopeful,” said Director Henric Wallmark. “Played out in the dark ages, but in a modern day apartment.”

Whatever the inspiration, there’s no doubt that the video is well worth a watch.

ALBUM REVIEW: Abandon (Kill Krinkle Club)

19 Apr

Kill Krinkle Club have a ridiculous name with a slightly convoluted back story; ‘Krinkle’ is, according to them, the voice in your head that stops you from reaching your full potential. And they want to kill him. 

One half of the Kill Krinkle Club duo is Swedish and the other Irish; this is reflected in the music, which is the form of lovely, eerie electronica that the Northern European countries seem to do so well. There’s more of an edge to Abandon than the usual fare, however; less desolate and more mellow.
