Known for his deeply soulful voice, the Swedish singer-songwriter Albin Lee Meldau brings back the passionate vocals of his past songs against a distinctly indie backdrop.
The song doesn’t just tell the story of one brooding over a past, perhaps unrequited love: the accompanying video is equally as captivating. The shots alternate between reversed shots of different social scenes: a man being pushed into a river are juxtaposed with a sulky Meldau smoking in a presumably abandoned, mildewy home. The scenes alternate accordingly while his rich voice overlays the dramatic visuals.
The instrumentals of the song are unique as well, with a calm piano mixed with unique drums and powerful horns throughout the chorus. The overall tone of the video is devastatingly melancholy, moreso because of Albin Lee Meldau’s voice than anything else. The layering of his own lyrics, full of their own longing, makes even scenes of the singer in a field of baby’s breath with a golden sky overhead feel like some sort of fresh, cold hell.

The artist may not be coming to New York, but perhaps will after he’s finished with his tour dates in Europe.
You can listen to Albin Lee Meldau’s other work, including his latest EP Bloodshot on Spotify and Apple Music.
