Shot in a friend’s workshop in Gothenburg & filmed by Damien Priest, sir Was explains the making behind the new video saying “We made a minimal, action, drama, live session film for “In The Midst’. Thanks to Agge, Nisse and Erik on the congas whom made time for this session between activities such as winning the Swedish veteran iceskating competition and playing drums with Little Dragon”
