Norwegian alternative rock band Kalandra today premiere their video for ‘Borders’ taken from their forthcoming debut album, The Line on By Norse Music. Weaving ethereal melodies into raw and eerie musical landscapes, Kalandra delivers a powerful blend of alternative rock and pop that will enchant fans of Aurora, Wardruna, Eivør, Röyksopp, Goldfrapp and Björk.
Unashamedly genre-fluid, the band draws inpiration 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 the folk traditions from all over Scandinavia.
Talking of the video the band state: “In essence, the song is 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 . . . 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.”
