Swedish dark electronics act Twice A Man have released a video for their new track “Dahlia”, which is featured on the 3CD and 72-page artbook compilation entitled “Songs of Future Memories (1982-2022)” that has been released on January 27.
The Swedes’ long-time artistic preoccupation with environmental issues is also reflected in the clip, which “contrasts the beauty of the natural world with the urban landscapes created by humanity” so the band says.
“The song ‘Dahlia’ is a reflection about our time,” Dan Söderqvist explains on behalf of the trio. “The world is getting darker and uncertain with wars, pandemics, and above all: climate change, environmental destruction, and through that a loss of biodiversity that is all caused by human activity. We experience a conflict between the outer world and an inner imaginary world. We need to feel comfort, and music at its best grants us that inner peace. Two new songs, ‘Lotus’ and ‘Dahlia’, were made to be included in our new compilation album ‘Songs of Future Memories’ and – in some respect – to epitomise the spirit of Twice a Man.”
The video is available below.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
