The video features the pair’s lyrics, addressing a state of mind of their generation, scrawled in multicolour across pavements, buildings and more.
Regarding the single I Am Karate say, “This song is about a character who will do whatever it takes to shine in the spotlight on/at whatever (Instagram, work, etc.) She just wants people’s attention and it turns into a twisted self-destructive chase for her. We wanted to poke on that state of mind of our generation that has gotten so normalized by the emergence of social media and question what the hell we’re doing.”
The Stockholm duo (Erika Soldh Ahlström and Marta Petterson) have released a slew of singles which have seen them achieve huge praise from the likes of The Times, The Guardian and many more.
‘News’ is out now through the pair’s own label I Am Karate Music, and their hits have seen them win the Best Unsigned Award at the highly revered GAFFA Awards in their home country.
