May 8, 2012 VIDEO ⁄  BRO-FI: VÅR


Danish lo-fidels VÅR – formerly known as War (a moniker possibly canned because of the other nine thousand bands called War, two of which are actually famous) – are the synthpop side-project of Iceage and Sexdrome vocalists Elias Bender Rønnenfelt and Loke Rahbek. And yeah, while it might seem like they’ve been afflicted by spontaneous illiteracy, it’s actually Danish (for ‘Spring’ – a mythical season involving sunshine, which we are not familiar with here in England).In Your Arms (Final Fantasy) was originally released on Sacred Bones’ recent Record Store Day compilation, Todo Muere Vol. 2. The video features Loke’s childhood chum, Louis Toro, an Icelandic kid who introduced him to fun before eloping to Peru in pursuit of a striptease career. Bender and Rahbek claim that Toro is the living embodiment of their sonic aspirations and VÅR is a soundtrack to his life – making it safe to assume that this cute couple is in fact a bromosexual three-way. Save us a spot in that Scandwich, we’re comin in!
