Mats Udd delivers an otherworldly dance film for Swedish electronic artist Vanbot. With gloomy lighting in an eerie-looking location and some striking mirror work and production design, the dance and performance video transforms into a strange ethereal, disorienting journey. It's mesmerising stuff.

"The video for was shot outside of Stockholm in an old military camp," explains Udd. "I wanted to create a video that deals with space and time and focused on two people colliding."

Vanbot, aka Ester Ideskog (who also produced the video), has commented that the song was written and recorded on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Being on that train "moved her existence to a surreal, parallel place. [So] We wanted the video to move in a landscape untangled from time and in an indefinable space.”
