OUR BELOVED MASTERMINDS OF SYNTHS - RØYKSOPP - ARE NOMINATED TO A SPELLEMANN AWARD IN THE CATEGORY OF BEST MUSIC VIDEO.
In competition with Karpe Diem and Kygo, they are fighting for honour and glory with the black and white film to the track SKULLS. The acclaimed Norwegian director, photographer and long time collaborator Stian Andersen has already won the award for Best Cinematography at the Berlin Music Video Awards for Skulls and are likewise nominated for Best Music Video at Grimstad Short Film Festival in June. Andersen takes us on a haunting journey shot deep inside the woods of Northern Norway. We meet the guys in Røyksopp with friends in a rather scary, old house that belongs to the 83 year old Adolf, who also stars in the music video. It is a film where camera angles, composition, light as well as movement of the camera are placed at the center, alongside the very characteristic Røyksopp sound – be amazed!
