Swedish artist Zacharias Zachrison, aka Vacation Forever, has gathered quite a buzz about himself in the few years he's been creating music from his base in Stockholm. Now he's back with his latest creation, a futuristic collaboration with his friend and creative coder/technologist Johanna Tano for the stark visuals for his new single "Shadow".
Sitting somewhere between new wave, indie, pop and surf rock, "Shadow" is a twinkling, guitar led track to immerse yourself in completely. The Albin Eidhagen-directed video, meanwhile, focuses on a towering art installation of Taho's TVs that show a mixture of distorted images and Zachrison jamming out and singing wistfully into the camera.
"The idea of this video started with an Instagram post in my feed by my friend Johanna Tano. She was working on an amazing visual art project with a bunch of old TVs. So I sent her a DM: 'Can I borrow your TVs for my new music video?'. And she said YES! How it works? I have no idea! Johanna is a genius. There's a lot of matrix code, computers, cables and a black painted stands for the TVs. Together with the video director, Albin Eidhagen, we created custom made videos and animations for the TV screens which was live mixed when we filmed it. If you look closely, you can see me skateboarding on one of the screens. We filmed me skating around in a green spandex bodysuit. That was kind of strange. I hope you like the video as much as I do."
