Recently, Peter Morén (he of Peter Bjorn and John) released Broken Swenglish, Vol. 1, an EP of tunes that was first written in English, sung in Swedish, and translated back into English. (Fingers crossed he used Google Translate—then it could double as a comedy album.) Here’s a video from that effort for album track “Say My Name.”

Says Morén of the filming process:

“Me and my friend Tomas Nordmark from Fanatic did this video in exactly one hour. It doesn’t have to be more complicated than that. I’m lying a little ’cause I’m not sure how many hours he spent editing. But the shooting took an hour. We went up the little ski slope that is situated close to my apartment in the southern suburbs of Stockholm just by a nature reservation park.

It’s called Hammarbybacken and got a great view. This was last fall before the snow made its grand entrance but it was still pretty damn cold. At least if you’re wearing a really thin summer suit with a t-shirt as I had set up my mind to do. But we thought it would look good with the scenery in B&W. I think it did. The only script idea was walking up the slope and walking down again. It suits the desolate mood of the track I think. Sort of desperate but calm all at once!”
