The clip sees singer Arnór Dan Arnarson share his childhood in the form of old VHS footage yet it is done with purpose. The track is a tribute to Arnarson’s family and close friends, but more specifically his father who died when Arnór was 20.
Arnarson spoke to Upset Magazine about the video:
“When I was informed that we were going to release this song as a single and a video was needed, I just couldn’t think of a concept that would do it justice. Then I realised I had all the footage I needed in my own living room: VHS tapes my mom had converted to digital and given to us children when my father had passed away.
It was really difficult to go through the footage and to hear my father’s voice. I’ve had trouble doing this since his death, but this video finally gave me focus and a purpose and I started to go through everything with a lump in my throat and a smile on my face. I knew instantly that I wanted the footage to be the first years of us as a family and our move to Denmark. Just so much innocence, love and new life to be witnessed during that period of time.”
‘Wait For Me’ is lifted from Agent Fresco’s forthcoming album, ‘Destrier’, which is released on August 7th through Long Branch Records/SPV.
