Tobias Fröberg: When We Go To War [NSFW Video]

tobias-froberg

Tobias Fröberg mixes folk and pop with the electro side of both genres in his new song “When We Go To War”. The video compliments the song’s electronic elements thanks to outstanding performances by dancers Kage Mulvilai and Azumi Oe. Filmed by Shane Sigler and directed by Petter Ringbom, “When We Go To War” is a classic good versus evil, light versus dark, carnal and savage portrayal of the human spirit and its brute animalistic heritage. Bringing performance art into a music video is an excellent concept that not enough bands use to their advantage. The result is one of the best music videos yet this year.

“When We Go To War” is off Tobias Fröberg’s new album The Big Up, out next week. Careful, there are a few brief moments where this video is probably not safe for work…

One thought on “Tobias Fröberg: When We Go To War [NSFW Video]

  1. Wow, that is a great video. I especially enjoy the fact that the vignette presented is so open to interpretation, like the allegories of good vs evil or carnal passions that you aptly describe, or simply as a metaphor for the dissolution of a relationship between two lovers. Now I am curious to see what other videos by this artist are like.
