Since releasing an eponymous debut album back in 2001, Tobias Wilner has stayed true to the concept of a rotating cast of collaborators for his anything-is-possible Denmark collective Blue Foundation.
Five albums and three EPs later, he continues to surprise. To wit, the stark yet opulent new single “Where The End Begins,” with its lush synths, jittery, reversed beats, and cryptic vocals, is captivatingly dreamlike, even otherworldly. The accompanying video, which BlackBook premieres here, uses cinematic trickery to startling effect
“The video is inspired by a vivid, bizarre, and disturbing dream,” he explains, “one that seemed hard to distinguish from reality. It started out working with still photos, and slowly turned into moving pictures, mostly shot through glass and mirrors. I wanted to create a self portrait. I was also able to turn singer Sara Savery into a sexy witch, and the other half of Blue Foundation, Bo Rande, into weird angel like figure.”
It’s taken from Blue Foundation’s upcoming sixth LP (out April 12 on KØИ Records) titled Silent Dream. Wilner now splits his time between Copenhagen and Brooklyn, with Bo Rande as an actual permanent musical accomplice.
