Gothenburg-based Dark Electronic /Shoegaze musician, singer and composer Andreas Lind returns under his moniker D4RKSTAR with the Official Video, directed by Andreas Häggström, for “Friendly Fire” taken from last July’s double A-side single “End of Days / Friendly Fire” mixed and produced by Stefan Eriksson (Brotherhood, Sister Electra, Fenix, etc).
Wrapped in a deeply emotional somber aura, “Friendly Fire” layers hypnotic, plodding drum beats, rippling buzzing low-end, elongated glowing synth drifts and twinkly stacking wistful chords, to resound with distorted stirring poignancy alongside nostalgic heartfelt vocal agony, begging a loved one to take it easy for a while, lest his fragile heart breaks.
Heady visuals shot and directed by Andreas Häggström, star Tatiana Tatsuli of Stockholm‘s Dark Wave duo Hidden Lines, as a troubled singer whose traumatic memories form an intriguing series of fantastical visions. A surreal realm of shadows and illusions fuses crafty camerawork, stylish wardrobe and make-up, suggestive locations, and on-point acting into a suspense-laden finale where a haunting truth syncs seamlessly with the melancholy and pain of the soundtrack.
