If you’re not following the Scandinavian music scene closely chances are you haven’t heard of Dante or his amazing “Won’t Go”, which was released late last year. “Won’t Go” is one of those brilliant pop moments that happens all too rarely – it’s been in constant rotation since I first heard it and it definitely makes the thought of Dante’s upcoming solo debut all the more appealing.
You won’t find “Won’t Go” on the record though, as it samples a pretty famous singer who recently won six Grammy Awards and they couldn’t secure the rights for the sample. Despite this they’ve chosen to make a video for the track, which was filmed during Dante’s visit to China last year. Watch the Olle Kirchmeier-directed clip below.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
