Holiday for Strings is a magical band, consisting of three professional chefs, John Eriksson (Peter Bjorn & John), and Pontus Berghe (aka Pony from Thieves Like Us). “Unwilling/Not Able” is most like the latter group, with angular 70s laid-back European disco meets modern Chillwave.
This video was created by Daniel Eskils, who has become known in the music video world thanks to his work for artists like Temper Trap, Caribou and Boys Noize. It features footage from airports, layovers, and a barrage of secretive people-watching.
“Unwilling/Not Able” is off Holiday For Strings’ new digital EP of the same name, available now on bandcamp. My favorite, outside of the original, is the 13-minute extended edit, which you can hear below.
