“She’s wearing her favourite dress, the one that he bought.
And she’s put on her dancing shoes, she’s put on her rouge…”
Looking for something to fight the February blues? Here it is, our brand new, self-made music video for our ballad “The Captain and the Widow”! It’s a sad and romantic song full of longing, and so is the video, shot in September in two beautiful locations: In the deserted villas of Kruunuvuori and at Laura’s grandparents. It took us a while to finish, but here it is now, just in time for Valentine’s Day:
Take care of your Valentines and Valentinos, sweethearts! We are working hard on our first show KAMMERKABARETT, which premieres in Savoy-teatteri, Helsinki in May. Soon we’ll tell you all about it!
here’s a new video for (I’d teach you how to) Fly, shot on the way from the island of Thasos to the Greek mainland a few weeks ago as we were going to visit the Roman site of Philippi on the Via Egnatia. A flock of seagulls followed our ferry, circling around it to a hypnotic, inaudible rhythm. It was beautiful, I was fascinated and captured the gliding birds. Beauty is often so very simple.
This is not really a music video, more like a postcard: It’s a moving photograph, a mindscape, a meditative moment I want to share with you. If you like it, feel free to spread it.
On Tuesday, we woke up extremely early – for Jere at least – to get to the studio for a 3-hour video session for YLE (the Finnish Broadcasting Company). We were recreating a time, a place, and a performance – which means concentrating, giggling and having a great time. Keep your eyes peeled for the Omatuntoklubi documentary that comes out in the autumn, it seems we are featured in one of the episodes!
Posing with the fun, talented and handsome YLE gents Joonas Josefsson and Jarmo “Japi” Loikkanen. We can hardly wait to see their handiwork!
Oh, and do check the concert calendar, it’s updated with some marvellous news! Also, we have a wonderful idea for our next music video, and we hope to share it with you before the aeroplane takes off for Kraków. It might be only minutes before, though…
What Bohemian rogues be these?
