Video: Wildbirds & Peacedrums enter the boxing ring
With a name like Wildbirds & Peacedrums, uber masculinity and brute force are not exactly the first things that spring to mind – and a boxing ring is hardly the place you’d expect them to choose as a set for a music video.
According to La Blogotheque’s Margarita Jimeno, the idea behind the clip came from a chance encounter with a TV boxing match through the back door of a pizzeria. With a bit of luck and good timing, Wildbirds & Peacedrums ended up in the ring to shoot this beautifully bizarre, candid clip from French director Vincent Moon.
The Swedish duo – who have just released a new album, ‘Rivers’ – make music of classic Icelandic purity, which somehow adds a strange new depth to the less-than-elegant world of boxing.
