Major news from the Belgian electronica act Metroland, known for their updated Kraftwerk sound. The band’s 2012 song “The Passenger” has been selected to appear as main song for the official Swedish Stockholm underground promo video.
The song accompanies the video which was made by the Swedish visual art company Familjenpangea for the official Swedish Stockholm underground. They won a gold award at this years Golden Egg Awards for the new Visual Identity for SL (Stockholm Public Transport). This can be compared to winning a Red Dot award internationally or a Grammy (speaking in music terms).
You can view the video below.
“The Passenger” is taken from the “Mind the gap” album which was released 4 years ago. You can order the normal CD version here (the 2CD boxset is since long completely sold out).
