NORWEGIAN POP SENSATION KALANDRA RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR THE SONG “BORDERS”
NEW SINGLE “BORDERS” AVAILABLE ON ALL PLATFORMS
DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM THE LINE – OUT NOW VIA BY NORSE MUSIC
Norwegian alternative pop sensation Kalandra release the outstanding video for their latest single “Borders”, filmed by Ragnarok Film who recently produced two thrillng videos for Wardruna. “Borders” is the second song unveiled from their debut full-length album The Line, out now via By Norse Music.
About the track the band comments:
“In essence, the song is about witnessing your own vulnerability in comparison to the massive forces that move the world. The video tries to convey that feeling through several intertwining narratives. The video was made by the brilliant people in Ragnarok Film and we had a wonderful time shooting it and exploring the beautiful locations around central Norway.”
Kalandra continue, “The song was inspired by the picturesque nature of Iceland, where the black volcanic sand along the beaches meets the raging Nordic seas. It’s about witnessing your own vulnerability in comparison to the massive forces that move the world. As humans on this Earth we wish to control our surroundings so that life can be a little bit more predictable. Inevitably we’ll all be confronted with our own death and must find acceptance through seeing the world as it truly is.”
Borders really is breathtaking, a real beautiful orchestral movement that will evoke emotions and leave you in utter awe.
Weaving ethereal melodies into raw and eerie musical landscapes, Kalandra delivers a powerful blend of alternative pop and rock that will enchant fans of Aurora, Eivør, Röyksopp, Goldfrapp and Björk. Inspiration is drawn from a wide range of artists such as Eivør, Anna Von Hausswolff, Jenny Hval and bands like Pink Floyd, Tool, Mastodon, Radiohead, TesseracT, Wardruna, Gåte, IRAH and Sigur Rós.
As well as female folk singers from Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Faroe Islands and Denmark, experimenting with vocal techniques from around the world (including Norwegian cow calls like kauking, to Mongolian, Arabic and Indian traditional vocal styles) which they use in combination with the more theatrical aspects of rock and metal.
The band comments on the album:
“An album years in the making. Written in a period of our lives which has been subject to a lot of change and introspection. The songs are reflections of the conflicting emotions that come with growth. The feelings of wonder, anger, loss and acceptance at watching both your own life and the world around you unfold. The Line talks about those different boundaries we come across in life. Be it mental barriers, lines on a map or the walls we put up between ourselves. Life can be a wondrous and terrible thing but we’ve found that ’Somewhere along the line, it gets easier.”
