Electro duo Klyne have released a new video inspired partly by the hardships of the Calais Jungle.
The video for ‘Water Flow’, which was shot entirely on iPhones, follows three friends on a road trip across what the band call “a fractured and fractious Europe”.
Singer Nick Klein explained: “‘Water Flow’ is about people being forced to start over and building a new life. And finding the courage and strength for it in their loved ones in order to do so.”
The video’s director Thomas Ralph added: “I was drawn to the band’s experiences of hope, migration and unity. It struck me to create something immediate and of today’s world. Looking back – having witnessed the adversity of the Jungle in Calais, serious run-ins with the French and Belgian police, and breaking down in austerity-hit Charleroi – the shoot and real life blended into one.”
The director continued: “The experience affirmed our own naivety to the many complexities and hard issues of the modern world, but also reassured us in the resolute strength of the human bond.”
Klyne – producer Ferdous Dehzad and singer Nick Klein – have also announced a live show at London’s Echoes on December 6. ‘Water Flow’ is out now on Because Music.
