The very filmic video, directed by Eric Ivar Persson, documents the misadventures of three teenage girls as they flee suburbia

Swedish 'noir-pop' trio DNKL attracted much critical acclaim in indie circles with their debut single Wolfhour earlier this year. Their follow-up single Otherside, however, sees them making a marked left turn into more electronic territory, and is accompanied by a dark, narrative-driven video by Eric Ivar Persson.

DNKL say of the track: “We started work on Otherside last summer, under quite some pressure. We were set to perform at Roskilde and at the time of the booking, we only had one track out on Soundcloud. We simply had to sit down together and create music that was needed for the show.

“It turned out to be quite an exciting challenge. It was the first time we had experimented with adding dancier elements to our music. Lyrically it’s still very DNKL, though: it’s a song about vanity and the heart-burning desire to always get a piece of what we don’t have. The constant gazing at the other side.”
