Kasper Bjørke ft. Jaakko Eino Kalevi - TNR

The Nordic Pairing’s Dark Disco Fuels a Luminous Imagination

Neon waves of post-punk disco ebb and flow over homages to 1980s screen classics in the video for “TNR” by Kasper Bjørke featuring Jaakko Eino Kalevi. “I have always been a sucker for producers like Vangelis and Giorgio Moroder, who both made brilliant soundtracks to some of my favorite movies around that time,” says Danish artist Bjørke. “I was lucky to work with my dear friend Kurt Uenala, who co-wrote the latest Depeche Mode album and that had an influence on the overall sound.” Finnish pop experimentalist Kalevi’s androgynous vocal haunts the shadowy club track, taken from Bjørke’s forthcoming album, After Forever. “I think that Jaakko is one of the most interesting acts to come out of the Nordic countries in a long time,” says Bjørke, who enlisted Amsterdam’s Alpaca Animations to conjure visuals pooled from Miami Vice and Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” video among other references. “It turned out though that both Kasper and us were big fans of David Hockney and Tron,” explain Alpaca’s founders, David Lamain and Martine Rademakers of the roots of the video’s inspiration. “We took big felt pens and started drawing; the camera captured the ink leaking through the paper, and we combined it with stop-motion and puppet elements.
