Love's young dream blurs the lines between fantasy and reality.
Back in September, Swedish trio DNKL released Otherside, their first glimpse of new material since their 2014 debut EP 'Wolfhour'. Described by the band as a track born out of a lot of pressure, the upbeat single provided a different facet to Gothenburg-based band's smoke-tinged sound though they haven't lost their appreciation for cinematic sensibilities, as evidenced by their new video.
Directed by Eric Ivar Persson, Otherside's syncopated beats and drama extend to a noir drama, with love's young dream finding itself initially on the other side of the law. The short film centers on three young women from a Swedish town who long for an escape from the city, and seek refuge in a woodland narcotic experiment. What follows is a blurring of fantasy and reality which is up to the audience to decide.
