"The video is a lovers conversion to a state where countless eyes stare at a heart that they'll need to share to quietly imitate what time has drained away," says Hjaltalín frontman Högni Egilsson about the new visual for "We Will Live For Ages".
Egilsson shot and directed the video himself in Morocco and describes it as "a complete induction into the amorous realm."
"Going to Morocco to shoot the video felt like an appropriate choice as the song speaks of the lover's induction into the amorous realm," explans Egilsson, "which we quietly imitated in our personal escape to the North African desert."
The song was Hjaltalín's first release since longplayer Enter IV saw them win acclaim and a place on the music world's radar beyond their native Iceland. They remain a highlight of the yearly Airwaves festival and appear again at this year's event - they play The 405 stage at Harpa Silfurberg on 6 November alongside Ariel Pink, Perfume Genius, Árstíðir and the incredible Grísalappalísa.
