Following on from their excellent collaboration for Heart Of Mine, Mats Udd reunites with Swedish musician Andrea Kellerman - aka Firefox AK – for Wildfire. 

Hazily lo-fi footage of Kellerman on the move in New York City is intercut with a much sleeker, sexy, scarlet scene: the artist half-naked with her man. These are the memories that haunt her as she travels around, from Manhattan to Coney Island.  

"The song is about that feeling, when all-consuming desire grabs you, and becomes destructive instead of beautiful," says Udd, who shot the NYC footage on a number of formats including Super 8mm (50D Och 500T), MiniDV and VHS. 

Their second collaboration is well-timed: it arrives a few weeks after their last collaboration won a prize at the 2017 Berlin Music Video Awards.
