Studio // NEW EP

This week was a really intense one for us – emotionaly and physicaly. We had seven days full of inspiration and ambition. We kept our power on a damn high level and recorded five new songs for our upcoming EP. Therefore we want to thank Sophia Hübner for recording ourselves and Robin Prischink (Perc.), Daniel Kovacs (Voc.), Andreas Ortner (Drums) and Paul Szelegowitz (Trumpet) for making this record even more special for us! We’ll let you know/hear more soon as we will know/hear more… (;

Kisses,
BAGAGE

NORTHERN LIGHTS // video

Now it’s there! We worked hard on it! The conceptual work for the new music video arises from three very talented filmmaking-students from UAL, England. In cooperation with BAGAGE the visual and content related design was developed, resulting in a multi-layered social criticism contribution. The music video is crossed by a minimalistic visual language which has references to the clear pictorial world of Wes Anderson and Ozu Yasujiro.

Similar to them, BAGAGE also tried to reveal the absurd and abstruse interpretation of one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. There is this ongoing shift in the range of value in the love for things and in the love among each other.
The music video links heroized close-ups from different objects as metaphorical critique for the rising consumption-orientated society. “we could snap 4ever, or we swipe 4ever!”, promises eternity in an age of short lifespan values. The lyrics spread the believe for an endless moment of stagnation, however, it is destroyed by the illusion of the eternity which gets lost forever from a further “match” or “snap”. Thus, fostering the endless space of the digital cemetery.
„Northern Lights” is both, an homage and a deconstruction of pop and the modern society overall – which draws close completion in the new music video:
