Iceland’s latest discovery Russian Girls stepping up for a fierce video. ‘Bíóbabb’ a co-production between Russian Girls and Kraftgalli raises the temperature somewhat, a quirky effected vocal on top of a tight rhythm section and those trademark posk punk synth sounds.
Just a few days after the release of Lydmor’s brand new album 'I Told You I’d Tell Them Our Story‘ we proudly present the new music video for the album’s fourth single 五 DIM.
"The song contains parts of the dialogue that also appears on the album’s opening track 'The Mansion'. Once more you are hearing a mysterious voice: ”Where are you going in life? I'm going in every direction possible.” In this song I'm equal parts in love and belittled." says Lydmor.
The video has been directed by Danish director, writer, designer, and animator Jeanette Nørgaard and is based on footage from „Fjer“
The third single from Lydmor's upcoming album 'I Told You I'd Tell Them Our Story' (09.28.2018).
The electronic musician and songwriter Lydmor opens the door into an edgy universe with her new single '四 Claudia', where something dark and wrong lurks in the shadows of bodies and hotel rooms that suddenly transform into Parisian luxury suites with panthers wearing diamond leaches. Musically and lyrically you can submerge yourself in the many layers of the song.
'四 Claudia' is a tour-de-force in dynamics and efficient build-up. From soothing electronic details the drama soars towards thundering cascades of synths in the techno-infused climax. As the musical drama intensifies, the lyrics grow into a reciting poem, rich with metaphors, with Lydmor both describing the situation and at the same time tears the patriarchal ideal to shreds.
She explains: "The song is a female declaration of power against the patriarchate, symbolized in the line: ”Behold, Money, I am woman!” Meaning: ”I observe you and I don't want you, because I'm stronger than you”.
The lyrics are based on a poem detailing how a rich man manipulates a woman's life, but in the end, she emerges victorious and on top. A feminist manifest for sure and a song about the horrible power tools grounded in sexuality, money, politics and submission. Based on personal experiences and presented as disguised art. If I revealed who Claudia truly really is, it would ruin the lives of certain people."
Once more Lydmor directed the new video herself based on footage from Shanghai and Copenhagen
