Norway’s KRAKOW have revealed another stunning new video for a track from their latest album “minus“.
The video, by Esteban Farias, is for the track “The Stranger” and can be seen at https://youtu.be/N27mhTwaRL8
Here is what the band have to say about the video:
Imagine a world where all you know to be true is also the opposite. Where every truth has an alternate side, and where there are heads on both sides of the coin and where the mirrors point both ways. Doesn’t take much to make that leap of faith, now does it? But still, beyond the second truth may be another, and another, and yet another version of reality. Layers, levels, dimensions, infinite snapshots of moments frozen in time, always existing yet forever lost.
This is the gift The Stranger carries, as he walks towards you, kaleidoscope in hand and an inviting smile. Ahead of you is a journey through KRAKOW’s complete musical universe, a distillation of all that KRAKOW ever was or will ever be. All the same this is like nothing the band has ever created before – a perfect song, a perfectly told story, a perfect snapshot of the Krakowian spirit.
The choice is yours now, and only you will see what is there for you to see.
Esteban Farias has outdone his talent on this one and truly capured the essence of The Stanger! Thank you.
“minus” was recorded in the famous Duper and Solslottet studios in the Bergen Kjøtt creative complex, in collaboration, once more, with Iver Sandøy. It is, effectively, two albums-worth of material distilled into one, very focussed, gem. According to the band, “minus” is “the pinnacle of achievement of KRAKOW’s thirteen-year existence, representing the bare essence of who KRAKOW are as individuals, as a group, and as story tellers. It defies any attempts at genre definition, and covers the heavy, the subtle, the melodic, the atonal, the groovy, the sluggish, the dense, the airy, the naked, and always, always, that wall of sound from whence no light can escape.
Available on Karisma Records in Digipak, 12″ Vinyl, and Digital formats, “minus” includes a guest appearance from MOTÖRHEAD’s Phil Campbell on the opening track, and ends with a choir consisting of a select group of Bergen-based musical veterans.
