Kastrup | Thieves

Photo Ready Memories and Nostalgia in the Swedish Band’s Latest Music Video

Set in Malmö, Sweden, Swedish band Kastrup compliment their latest track, Thieves, with a wistful narrative of lovers embracing the moment, and seemingly without a care.

Director, Christofer Nilsson of Mohave Media, wanted the video to feel like a memory, and a visit back to the freedom of youth.

‘Although at first glance it might look like a story about two people, I feel like it’s rather a collage of a state of mind, or a vibe,’ Christofer told us. ‘I wanted to shoot it in a way that resembles still photography storytelling, almost like the whole video is a nostalgic memory sprung from looking at old pictures, from that rebellious night of escapism.’

We caught up with Christofer to find out more:

The Plus: What would do you hope viewers think about or feel whilst watching the video?
Christofer Nilsson:
I think that almost everyone has a memory of that one night where nothing else existed. No expectations, no responsibilities. Everything felt endless and hopeful, yet equally melancholic. I wanted to trigger that feeling and leave the viewer in a nostalgic haze.

TP: Was their anything particularly challenging to achieve in the making?
Low light situations and car scenes are always a mess. Just don’t do it. But apart from that, not really. For once, I had plenty of time to really dig into the idea and the vibe. The actors, Amanda and Tilman, did a great job during all stages of production. Along with the fact that Kastrup had complete faith in us, it really made for optimal conditions.


Could you tell us about your next project?
Well, we’re really keeping ourselves busy. Some projects with the badass hip-hop collective Fantastic and a handful live sessions for Hurricane Love, to mention a few. We’re also planning our next trip to California, which will be in the first quarter of 2016.
