Sweden’s Amason have covered Foreigner’s ‘80s classic “I Want to Know What Love Is” on their recent EP, California Airport Love. Now the band has shared a video for their cover. Filip Nilsson directed the clip, which is about a man’s international hunt for the Yeti. It stars Erick Lundqvist. Watch it below via Pitchfork, who premiered it.

Nilsson talked to Pitchfork about the video: “As I’m already blessed to live with a person who shows me love, I shortly after the concert called Erick to ask how he was, and if he wanted to tell me more about his solitude? During this call, that went on all night, I came across a study that said that the Yeti (in some civilizations called Bigfoot) is the most loving creature around. Erick could instantly see why, just like him he thought, the Yeti was misunderstood in all its attempts to intimacy. So we decided there and then, me still high on emotions from the tone, to let everything else be and find the Yeti. We travelled for six months and the search took us to Brazil, Sweden and Switzerland. The video shows pieces of the quest, and what other music to complement it, then the tune that started it all?”

Amason’s exccellent debut album, Sky City, came out back in January 2015 on Fairfax Recordings/INGRID. Amason’s members also play in other notable Swedish bands and are Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow), Gustav Ejstes (Dungen), Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette), Amanda Bergman (Hajen, Idiot Wind), and Nils Törnqvist (Little Majorette).
