Nordic four-piece Liima have premiered the video for their debut single ‘Amerika’, from their forthcoming album ii, out on March 18th.
The short film was directed by Olivier Groulx and filmed on America’s west coast in Palmdale, CA. It was shot entirely on smart phones and features all four members of Liima. Watch ‘Amerika’ below.

 

Liima – ‘Amerika’
Directed by Olivier Groulx

The Finnish word for ‘glue’, Liima is a new band formed by Finnish percussionist Tatu Rönnkö plus Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg of Danish act Efterklang.

“Rasmus and I kept going back to this idea that everybody’s anxious and that whatever we’re doing to distract ourselves from these anxieties is no longer working,” says Groulx. “That feeling of not being able to outrun it is what got us started.”

ii features songs written in Finland, Berlin, Istanbul and Madeira during four week-long residencies, each place influencing the sound, sometimes literally through field recording and sampling. Every residency ended with a live concert, performing the freshly written songs in front of an audience. With their simple live set-up – synthesisers, drum samplers, vocals, effects pedals and a bass guitar – the four have been able to draw upon their creative dynamic, playing by intuition like a collective conscience, to shape improvised sketches and ideas into songs. ii was recorded at Vox-Ton studio in Berlin, produced by Jonas Verwijnen and mixed to tape by Francesco Donadello.


‘Amerika’ Lyrics
The water makes you sick
America
The house across the street
America
You’re holding on a rhythm
di-di-de – in America
The light across the street
in America
Deep in America
You’re hoping, now
I’m hoping, we’re
All hoping, let’s
All hope – come on
I’m hoping, now
You’re hoping, now
We’re hoping now
I’m hoping for America
You are somewhere
Somewhere deep in America
I hope for you
Will I hope for you
I hope for you
Believing
