New Fredrik Video – “1986”

A couple of weeks ago we listened to newly coined BTW Fredrik, the more acoustically oriented Swedish sextet from the men behind previously loved electro pop outfit the LK. Today we get to watch, although most of the sextet sit out the video debut in favor of stop-motion pictures from a child’s imagination: oversized goldfish sidle up to sitting deer, UFOs hover, dorsal-finned guitars are strummed. According to the band, the gentle and faintly whimsical ballad is a “small fable on the discovery of violence in the head of a troubled 7-year old,” so there is some sync between the music and scenery, although its best taken as a new listen to their worthy Na Na Ni LP.

Here’s a nice one from the LP:
