Stockholm-based, Australian-raised Vilde’s video for ‘Warm Milk’ arrived in my inbox yesterday. It’s arty-pop, compelling and strangely unsettling – and that’s before you watch the video.
It’s taken from his new album, Thud, which will be released on July 13. He’s a talented man, not only did he shoot the video himself, but he has written, performed, produced and mastered the entire record himself, which also features ‘Flash In The Pan.’
Known to his parents as Thomas Savage, he says:
”I hadn’t any idea for a theme in the beginning, the conscious element in the process is quite limited. It’s mostly reliant upon feeling resonance in the words rather than a specific line of thought. Sometimes I bring in some more conscious thinking, but if I really succeed, they somehow manage to fall into linear coherency. I’m in it for the feeling of experiencing what poured out of me afterwards, rather than attempting to express any sort of certainty. If I was certain about something I suppose it’d be better as a novel.”
Having merely given it a listen, I’m now finding my appetite whetted for the album…
