Swedish artist Tilde, whose musicality resides in retro-soul and borders modern pop, adds sultry blues to her repertoire with style. Her recent single Don’t Walk Down That Road, now has an official video, and its echoing warning message and vintage appearance are both cinematic in appeal.
Everything in this video felt extracted from the song and materialised into life (or is the shadowy guitarist really there?).
Director Pedram Fazelzadeh captures the ideal backdrop and recorded scenes in different locations around Gothenburg such as the beautiful Hotel Pigalle in the city centre, the countryside of Lindome and even in Tilde‘s living room. The decor is opulently nostalgic and the classic car muscular, while Tilde fashionably embodies ’60s chic with a noir edge of mystery.
The song features guest vocals by the outstanding Arvid Nero. Beneath Tildes’ warmth, his deeper, darker tones ultimately increase the overall haunting intensity.
Mellow with atmospheric blues guitar notes and a soulful arrangement, re-imaginations of this quality continue to emerge from a new generation finding their voices inspired from the past. Tilde is advancing and uplifting the brevity of nordic soul music.
Don’t Walk Down That Road. Wash hands and stay at home and listen.
