Stina Stjern – New Explorers (Video Premiere)
Watch the new video for Stina Stjern's New Explorers, filmed by Emil Salto
Norwegian singer-songwriter Stina Stjern unleashed her latest single New Explorers into the world a week ago, and The Skinny are pleased to be premiering the delightfully retro home movie-inspired music video for the track, which you can watch in the player above.
New Explorers is Stjern's first new music since 2011’s Days Like Waves, and is the first single to be released from her upcoming new album, Kap Herschell. The main body of the album was recorded in Stereolab founder Tim Gane’s studio in Berlin with engineer Jeffrey Fisher. To give the songs that retro feel, the tracks were then taken apart, played through old cassette tapes and synthesizers and re-recorded in Trondheim.
In New Explorers you can hear the effect of this style of recording – the resulting output is one of infectious, woozy, psychedelia. Of the single, Stjern tells us: "New Explorers is about searching for yourself in toxic, symbiotic relationships that can occur when identifying too much with another person.”
Danish visual artist Emil Salto made the accompanying music video for New Explorers from one of his previous art video installations. Stjern says: “I saw the video and thought the double exposure of the twins would make a great visual comment on my song.”
Kap Herschell is released via Sellout! Music on 26 Jan 2018
