Burst have completed shooting a video for "Where the Wave Broke," the lead-off track from the bands new record Origo.
Drummer Patrik Hultin comments, "The video shoot for 'Where The Wave Broke' was all in all a great experience. To have someone outside the band visualize our music was a new experience for us. To let go of a song and let someone else interpret it gives everything an entirely new feel, and judging from the sneek-peeks we´ve gotten, the end result will be stark, intense, and suggestive. Peter and Kim (Reinholdsson and Petersen, the video directors/producers of Harvest Light) and their dedicated crew really went out of their way with this."
Exclusive still shots of the video shoot can be viewed here. The video, the first from Origo and the band 's second overall, will make its international debut in November.
