Kvelertak release new video inspired by Bergman

NORWAY’S Kvelertak have released the official music video for “Nattesferd,” the title track from their acclaimed new LP which was released last month. (The video is available to view below.)

The otherworldly clip - produced by Norwegian production company Bacon and directed by Jakob Marky was filmed in Fårö, a Baltic Sea island off the south eastern coast of Sweden where Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman lived / died and made several films, among them Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Persona (1966), Hour of the Wolf (1968), Shame (1968), The Passion of Anna (1969), and Scenes from a Marriage (1972).

Marky, a recent winner of the prestigious After Bergman Award which allowed the possibility of filming on Fårö, commented on the video said: "I wanted to make something circular, as the track has it’s never-ending guitars, coming back to haunt you. I very much liked the idea of filming science fiction on the same places that Tarkovsky and Bergman visited. I think both of them were very big fans of the golden triangle too, or so I heard.”

Heading into 2016 NATTESFERD garnered “Most Anticipated” accolades from Rolling StoneStereogum andConsequence of Sound and now only a month since its release Kvelertak’s new LP is already receiving “Best of 2016” praises.   Nattersferd is available now at  www.Kvelertak.com and at all DSPs.

Recorded live in Oslo, Norway’s Amper Tone Studio, Nattesferd is produced by Kvelertak and mixed / engineered by Nick Terry (Lindstrøm, Turbonegro, The Libertines). It is the first of Kvelertak’s albums to be recorded in their home country of Norway.
