I’ve been in need of some new music lately, so much so that I’ve taken to browsing through YouTube and various blogs in my free time. During my search, I discovered the French house music duo Klingande. The duo’s Facebook page states they are “two students who love making and mixing music.” Their entrancing songs allow you to recognize their passion for music, and I can’t wait to hear more from them in the future.
I first heard Klingande’s song “Jubel” on the blog Soundtrack of the Youth. The blog is maintained by a 23-year-old Norwegian woman who posts updates on new music from the indie, house, pop and electronica genres. I love how she incorporates photographs into each of her posts, and you should check out her blog if you have the chance. Click on the link above to see it for yourself!
After hearing the song on her blog, I looked it up on YouTube and watched Klingande’s visually-appealing music video. I love the road trip feel of the video. We see individuals driving cross country in a van and walking along the beach. The image of a feather is seen throughout the video; we see it as a girl’s earring, in a front pocket, and hanging on the rearview mirror in the van.
I went on a mad search for where this video was filmed because I loved the shots of the beach so much. This task proved more difficult than I thought it was going to be. Eventually, I found out that it was filmed this past August in Denmark, but I couldn’t determine specific locations in the country.
By comparing shots from the video, I am making my best guess by saying part of the video was filmed at Møns Klint, white chalk cliffs along the coastline of Denmark. According to lonelyplanet.com, you can reach Møns Klint by entering through the woods of Klinteskoven behind the cliffs.
Denmark was a country I had no previous inclination of ever visiting, but now it’s on my bucket list. Klingande now owns a spot on my iTunes’ “Recently Added” playlist, and I hope to learn of new places to go with their future music videos.
