Swedish experimental duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums have just released a video for “Keep Some Hope,” a song from their upcoming album, Rhythm. The husband-and-wife unit are known for their minimal yet powerful percussion-driven sound, and “Keep Some Hope” is their creative take on a soul song. Mariam Wallentin’s strong vocals deliver the titular mantra, as the drums ceaselessly march forward. The video is an unsettling depiction of two lovers clinging to one another as they slowly disappear. The intense images of the two embracing in the forest and watching each other through windows is potent yet ominous. Watch.
Rhythm is out 11/03 and you can pre-order it here.
