Video Premiere: F.U.N.C. – Nectar

Written by 
Finnish/Dutch duo F.U.N.C. invite you to their futuristic R&B adventure to the dark side of the human psyche with the release of their music video - Nectar.

The video marks the point Nordic R&B rose to a new level and immediately becomes a classic of this new alternative genre.

The video is more of a short Nordic noir movie and perfectly reflects their debut single 'Nectar', as it's based on the primal scent of seduction and turmoil.

Stripped of dialogue, and driven by soulful tones and hard-hitting beats, the dark, captivating video is a combination of instantly intriguing stories revolving around sex, deception, violence and greed.

Soaked in realism and atmospheric chill it feels peeled from the pages of a Henning Mankell or Stieg Larsson novel as we get a glimpse behind the curtains, doors and streets of a cold Scandinavian winter.

F.U.N.C. opened the creativity of the story to Helsinki-based writer and director Simo Liukka. Together with sublime cinematography by Jukka Moisio and exquisite production by Visual Works they produce a mesmerising five+ mins.

F.U.N.C. is a collaboration between Finnish producer Misha and Dutch singer Chai Blaq.

The song reflects the inner greed, the primitive desire for the forbidden fruit – Nectar”, elaborates producer Misha.

The highly praised debut single has over 110 000 streams on Spotify with a prime airtime on popular alternative radio stations in Finland and the Netherlands.

We expect that number to only rise.

F.U.N.C. have created a genre defining moment musically and now visually.

    Funk and soul music has always been a genre known for carrying a message, one which if not always overtly political can often be termed social commentary. Its roots in the race struggles of 60’s American led artists such as Marvin Gaye, Cutis Mayfield and Sly and The Family Stone to become narrators of those troubled times and that relationship between the politics and the music remains ingrained.

    The Nils Landgren Funk Unit sideman’s fifth album has plenty to say about what we are doing to the planet and what we are doing to each other but does so in a way that exudes hope for the future, brims with optimism and never preaches. No soapboxes where harmed in the making of this record.
