Ahhh… Miss Ballentine.
Admit it; in our youth, we’ve all had a teacher we liked a little more than we should have. We’re reminded of these hormone raging days with Swedish band Damn! new single/video – Fröken (eng. Teacher) which cleverly combines a classic Swedish film of forbidden love.
Damn! is a live music band funk, soul, afrobeat and hip-hop, perhaps best known for their collaborations with Swedish rapper Timbuktu.
The video is an excellent combination of Damn! with the movie Lust och fägring stor (1995). Directed by Bo Widerberg, the film was released internationally as All Things Fair.
Lust och fägring stor is about a sexual relationship between a teacher and her 15-year-old student in southern Sweden during World War II.
Sung in Swedish ‘Fröken‘ is layered with retro soul harmonies and arrangements, resulting in an incredibly charming single and video.
