Mumrunner: Shoegaze-Punk aus dem hohen Norden
Kurz nach ihrer Europatour überraschen uns die Finnen von Mumrunner mit dem ersten Musikvideo ihrer Geschichte. Cascais stammt von ihrer 2016er Gentle Slopes EP.
Mumrunner selbst zum Video:
The idea of the video was to put the band members amongst the scenario and scenery of World War II. The video was shot with an old 16mm film camera from the early 1960’s to achieve a similar feeling and picture quality with the used archive material, so it’s hard to tell which shots are old and which are new.
Director Otto Heikola äußert sich wie folgt zu seinem Werk:
The inspiration for the song had come from an actual event in which boyish behaviour lead to tragedy. In the music video we decided to do something thematically similar, but on a much larger scale, set in the violent events of World War II with the band becoming part of the action.
