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!”
WhoMadeWho compiled & mixed the next volume of Get Physical´s Body Language series.
The genre-crossing band consists of drummer/DJ/producer Tomas Barfod, and the two-headed vocal monster singer/bassist Tomas Hoffding, AKA Bon Homme and singer/guitarist Jeppe Kjellberg. With three extremely different backgrounds in electronica, rock and jazz (respectively), each member supports and compliments each other independently, as one; challenging the traditional ‘band’ structure of days long past.
There is a significant reason why WhoMadeWho, unlike congenial bands like The Rapture, LCD Soundsystem or Radio 4, survived the so-called new millennium. It is their unconditional curiosity towards contemporary club sounds and their approach, often incorporating the functionality of club tracks in their own songs, to look further than the edge of the stage, keeping a close eye on and constantly checking the pulse of the dancefloor. Keeping this virtue close to their hearts has already brought them major exposure in some of the biggest sets from Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Tale Of Us and many more…
This approach they have issued in each of their six studio albums. So what better way to revive this approach as the DJ mix? And what Mix-series would be better suited, after acts like Matthew Dear, Dixon, Modeselektor or M.A.N.D.Y., to open WhoMadeWho’s vocabulary book for their own Body Language? Oops, spoiled the surprise. But surely it was clear that one of the best fits for their intentions is also one of the most prestigious and celebrated series – Get Physical Music’s Body Language series. To be out on April 4th.

This is ‘Dream Of Fire’, the maybe most driving and catchiest song on Lydmor & Bon Homme’s upcoming album ‘Seven Dreams Of Fire’.
It’s an anthemic, expansive slice of motorik disco that brings together two complementary voices – the husky drawl of Tomas Høffding, singer-bassist of experimental Danish pop trio WhoMadeWho, and rising singer-songwriter Jenny Rossander aka Lydmor (literally ‘Soundmother’) whose vocals run the gamut from seductive siren to strident rap. Instantly catchy and relentlessly buoyant, it’s a tune that whirls you far away from mundanity, lifting you up on its lush, layered pads and glimmering keys.
The video for ‘Dream Of Fire’ has been directed by Danish cinematographer and photographer Gry Friis and edited by director and editor Christophe Dolcerocca and allows an intimate perspective on the duo.
‘Dream Of Fire’ is taken from Lydmor & Bon Homme’s debut album ‘Seven Dreams Of Fire’ which is out now! ‘Dream Of Fire’ is available here.
Copenhagen three-piece, WhoMadeWho have decided to give away ‘Hiding In Darkness’ from their forthcoming album, ‘Dreams‘ out onMarch 3. In their own words: ‘"Hiding in Darkness’ is inspired by a trip to Berghain, the legendary techno-club in Berlin. Grasping thoughts and feelings from that experience." You can listen to it below.
In addition, WhoMadeWho have made a truly unique sound installation ahead of their album release. Never one to shy away from creative ideas, they placed a small sensor in front of a urinal, activated when a person steps in front of it. The track by WhoMadeWho is split in four parts, meaning the entire track is being rolled out when all urinals are being used at the same time! Watch it below.
The Copenhagen-based trio of WhoMadeWho have just unveiled ‘The Morning‘ via the bands webpage/iphone app. Serving as the lead single to their forthcoming ‘Dreams’ LP, which will be released on March 3, 2014, this marks the beginning of the next phase for the band as they delve into a more pop-focused sound on the new album. You can now stream ‘The Morning’ below. You can also check out the fan-created video for ‘The Morning’ on the band’s website which includes images tagged with #wmwthemorning.
With the coming album, the Copenhagen trio is taking it a step further, setting a goal to create an album that will challenge people’s perception of them as a niche act:
"We really don’t feel there are any good excuses for still thinking about our band as an underground act", says producer and band member Tomas Barfod. "It started to be too easy, always being able to hide yourself behind that label. And what is more challenging that making a strong pop album? No doubt it’s still WhoMadeWho; just our band as it sounds today."
