Following the release of their catchy & euphoric new album ‘Relax/Relapse’ this October on Riot Factory, Norway’s Dråpe have shared a new video for track ‘Round and Around’. A carefree adventure through the park through the lense of the 60’s.
Directed by the band’s guitarist Even Hafnor, who is an award-winning filmmaker in his own right, he describes the video as: “A homage to music video’s from the 60s.” Hafnor explains: “The idea behind the video was to try to recreate the style, and, well.. the weirdness of music videos from the 60´s. I love the naivety of these videos, the lined up choreography, the naive (but charming) use of camera and the stiff performance by the band. I like how controlled the artists are in videos from that time, today many artists try so hard, which I find a bit tiresome. To get the look we wanted we used my grandfather’s film camera from the sixties and we tried to use only picture compositions that we had seen in music video’s from the sixties. I felt that this atmosphere suited the vibe and lyrics of our song.”
