Sløtface share surrealism-inspired video for comeback single ‘Telepathetic’

Norway’s finest continue their rapid return to the top

After returning with their superb new single ‘Telepathetic’, Norwegian indie-pop favourites Sløtface have now revealed a surrealist video for it.

The band collaborated with local artists for the film. “What we really wanted to do was to gather all of our creative friends and acquaintances and create something. Not knowing specifically what we were actually going to get,” say the band.

“Our experience is that if you bring talented people together and film it it will usually be a good music video. The song is all about waiting for something good to happen, and we thought the idea of statically waiting as a part of the art would be a funny way to showcase that feeling of stasis.

“We really can’t say enough times how thankful we are to all of our friends who contributed with art and help with the video, they really made it something really fun and special.”

We interviewed the band earlier this week ahead of a sold-out London show. Talking ‘Telepathic’, the band’s Tor-Arne Vikingstad said: “We felt we lacked a Billy Idol kind-of track, like ‘Dancing With Myself’”.
