Adana Twins team up with L.A. director Katja Deferkiel to produce an unforgettably cinematic music video for their latest single ‘Relentless’, featuring vocals from WhoMadeWho’s Jeppe Kjellberg.
Katja captures the Mojave Desert in epic style, using wide camera shots and visual effects for a vivid and striking music video that adds a whole new dimension to ‘Relentless’.
‘Relentless’ features brooding synths and percussion next to Jeppe’s heart-felt performance – something that Katja embraced to create the music video:
“I decided to shoot in a remote part of the Mojave Desert, on ancient Indian Land with Volcanoes, sheer endless roads and dramatic light because this landscape for me reflects the feeling of longing and loneliness I hear in the song”.
German born but based in Los Angeles, Katia Deferkiel’s vivid cinematography perfectly combines with Adana Twin’s sultry sound and Jeppe’s commanding vocal performance to create a mesmerizing package that is primed for success not just on the dance floor but beyond too.
On teaming up with Jeppe Kjellberg and Katia Deferkiel, Adana Twins comment:
“Working with Jeppe Kjellberg from WhoMadeWho was a pretty cool experience! His voice is simply amazing and we’re more than happy. It was a lucky coincidence that our good friend and director Katja Federkiel from Los Angeles loved the song as much as we do!”
After teasing its release for the past few weeks, Washed Out is back today to share his first album in nearly 4 years. Mister Mellow arrives as the most ambitious Washed Out album to date, as Ernest Greene commissioned original music videos for each of the album’s songs to create a comprehensive visual counterpart for the album. Created by 11 different video artists, the album’s visuals utilize several forms of animation; from claymation and stop-motion to hand-drawn cartoons.
To take his bold vision even further, Washed Out has collaborated with Microsoft to produce a dynamic live show, allowing fans to experience in person his “impressionistic view of the world.” The creative team behind the collaboration turned to Microsoft technology to translate the rich, detailed patchwork of Mister Mellow’s music and visuals into an equally powerful live experience. Robust and advanced live integrations mimic the wide range of artistic styles seen and heard on the album.
In addition to Mister Mellow’s original visuals, Washed Out enlisted Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney to create a unique special entitled The Mister Mellow Show. In it, Mooney hosts the fictional program The Mister Mellow Show, on which Washed Out’s Ernest Greene is a featured guest that is interviewed by Mooney’s character Your Boy Charlie before watching the visuals for Mister Mellow together.
Mister Mellow is out on Digital & CD/DVD now. The directors, animators and artists who contributed to Mister Mellow range from the go-to animator for hip-hop superstars to a BAFTA Award-winning documentary director.

Just in time for Summer’s warm up arrives Romare’s ‘Come Close To Me (Live Session 1)’ a hazy, pulled-apart live edit of the single taken from his 2016 LP Love Songs: Part Two. Along with the track, which rides out like a slow-burning exercise in self-sampling, is a witty, 80’s inspired music video drenched in analog VHS sheen and complete with a blurry Mazda speeding off into a fading dusk. “From our first phone call discussing the concept for ‘Come Closer’ [Come Close To Me’ – Ed]”, says director Greg Barnes “Archie (Romare) and I were on the same page. We both wanted to push the limits of what a performance-based, session style video could be, and it was clear that meant smoke, lasers, and his Mazda.”
The single and video are released today (premiered via Crack) on Ninja Tune, just as Romare prepares for his forthcoming headline show at KOKO on 11th November – his biggest and dare we say most impressive performance to date– which will see him showcase his disco-heavy cuts with a live band in addition to DJ sets by Romare himself and a string of other companions late into the night.
