Dance pair are to release another video tomorrow (March 13)
Axwell & Ingrosso play cage fighters in the video for new song On My Way.
The duo are shown fighting each other in the clip, which can be seen below. It’s directed by Christian Larson, who has also directed videos for Sigur Ros and Kylie.
Axwell said: “We came up with the idea of a video with a Fight Club feeling, just getting dirty, totally not polished in any way, and have fun with it. It was shot in Romania in temperatures over 100F and Christian totally nailed the vision for it.”
The pair, who were previously two-thirds of Swedish House Mafia, trained for the fighting scenes for four days in Ibiza between shows. Sebastian Ingrosso said: “We trained with a ninja on how to fight without hurting each other, but it didn’t really work. There was lots of real pain. It’s the first time we’ve fully been in a video and no-one knows us better than Christian.”
Another video with the same theme for the song Can’t Hold Us Down is released tomorrow afternoon (March 13). The duo released new single Something New last week, but say they wanted to make a short film to go alongside separate tracks On My Own and Can’t Hold Us Down. Their debut album is due for release later this year.
Since Swedish House Mafia split in 2013, the trio’s other member Steve Angello has pursued a successful DJ career.
Axwell & Ingrosso play a one-off gig at London Alexandra Palace on June 6, as well as appearing at Coachella in April.
