Farao 'Warriors' by Irrum
Following up their collaboration for Hunter, Irrum and Norwegian singer Farao, aka Kari Jahnsen, have released this nebulous, atmospheric video for Warriors, which shows the singer in a strange and somewhat tense and very complicated gameshow.
But with its lovely, soft photographic quality, all of the the mysterious number-plotting, perplexing graphs, colour theory, and visual illusions give the clip a contemplative quality – like a brainy spin on a pop video.
"Kari told me she thought it was interesting if we represented the themes of the song, a choice, a gamble, giving up on something - with something simple and relatable. We decided on a game.
"The video puts us in a graphical game scenario. The format has some similarities to that of a classic TV game show, but we left the rules and context surrounding it pretty undefined."
