After MØL released their second studio album “Diorama” in November 2021, the guys from Denmark are back today with their brand new video for the song “Tvesind“.
For the frontman, Kim Sternkopf, “Diorama” is much more than an epitaph to his faith and childhood trauma. It’s a direct letter to those closest to him, communicating the scale of the hurt he feels in ways he couldn’t otherwise articulate. That’s why the album’s closing duology, “Tvesind” and the title track—described as containing the most personal lyrics on there—are in Danish. They’re for Sternkopf’s confidantes, not the metal masses, he explained in an interview for stereoboard.
Singer Kim comments:
“I got to have some profound conversations with my father that I wouldn’t have had if I didn’t get to write this. Sometimes it’s difficult to talk to people and say, ‘You did something really wrong to me,’ but if you have it on paper, a song or movie or something to speak out from, there’s something we can examine from different angles. That’s where the title ‘Diorama’ comes in. Despite the odds being against us, I believe there’s a lot of hope because I’ve found a way to talk to them.
We have been very fortunate to be working with british director/editor John Bradburn who conjured up some amazing work with excellent videos for both Deafheaven on “In Blur” and Emma Ruth Rundle on “Blooms of Oblivion“. He has treated the heavy subject matters of the album with the utmost respect and a razor-sharp eye for aesthetics that we believe should accompany all of our music.”
