Norwegian natives Tomorrow We Move To Hawaii are the electronic duo that you didn’t know you wanted to bounce to ‘til now. They move with bravado while still retaining a demure tone to them. Made up of one part Marianne Stranger (vocals) and one part Eyvind Brox (synth/drums), they make danceable electro-pop music that rattles your brain with a rumbling bass and earworm hooks. After years of musical experimentation, the band formed in 2010 and the Still Life EP is their first official release on Austin label Red Eye Transit.
Today, we present you exclusively the video for “Kill Romance,” taken from the said EP. It was directed and shot by Thomas Holtermann Østgaard and set on location of visual artist Cecilie Lind's exhibition What the Fuck is Wrong with Visual Candy?. It’s a concept of paradoxes; the visually appealing and tasty look of Lind’s art juxtaposed with the ugly, hulking gorilla that lurks between shots. “As romance in first glance, it was candy for the eye, but fragile with easily breakable materials. The essence of the track was for me how something beautiful can turn ugly—love gone wrong…” explains Østgaard. “The video is a collage of symbols and expressions. In the same way as the exhibition you can look at it for quite a while and still find new details, but as someone said: what the fuck is wrong with visual candy?”.
You can watch the video, featuring the lovely Marianne Stranger and that aforementioned ugly gorilla, below. If you’re hungry for more, check out the tracks “Still Life” (stay tuned as we’ll be unveiling its video next week when we’ll be having our first ever giveaway contest!) and “Feathers,” both from the Still Life EP and embedded underneath the video.
Tomorrow We Move To Hawaii are currently working on their debut full-length in Oslo and will be embarking on a North America tour this fall.
