The Fjords started as singer Petter Vagån’s solo dissertation at Trondheim Jazz Conservatory.
Once the songwriter had started to create, though, he swiftly found that he simply couldn't stop himself; and so his homework became an all-encompassing passion.
New single 'Lost' could well be the most potent thing The Fjords have achieved just yet, a further sign that they have evolved from Petter Vagån’s imagination into a muscular, creative four-piece.
The video was helmed by the singer, who illustrated the faces we see in the final clip. It's a delicately crafted stop motion affair, matching the song's brooding electronics and that taut lyricism.
Of the song itself Petter offers: "I got to witness how a person can manipulate and grind down another persons sense of reality and self worth. A friend of mine found herself in an emotionally abusive relationship that started to take a turn towards physical abuse. It took some time for her to regain her own perspective and see the world untainted by his sickened narrative, a slow descent from a dark place. Now she's back, and free."
A hymn to self-worth and self-discovery, 'Lost' is online now.
