The Swedish musician Jonathan Johansson is to release his new album ‘Lebensraum’ 18th of March. Jonathan recently released a video ‘Alla Helveten’ containing all the lyrics printed on screen. Jonathan once told that a lot of people are complaining because they can’t hear what he is singing. Therefore he decided to display the lyrics on the screen. When Jonathan and his friends were making the video, they came to realise that with the lyrics being shown on screen, the video became even more powerful.
Have a look at the video here:
We love this video. We love Jonathan Johansson. We love Malmö.
Jonathan is about to play in Sweden and Denmark in the near future, buy your tickets here
OkGo is really one of my favorite bands when it comes to making awesome and inspiring music videos. A lot of their videos are filmed in only one sequence which means they have to make everything correct throughout the whole video. Otherwise they have to start all over again. The videos contain a lot of humor and even though some of the videos may look “sparingly” designed, you never reach the point when you get tired of them.
Here are some of my favorites:
(I really had to sort these out because I think they’re all hilarious)
Besides from their awesome videos, OkGo’s latest album ‘Hungry Ghost’ just got available on Spotify. Have a listen!
