The project can be described as haunting, lo-fi electro with a limitless, multimedia angle. Iceage’s Elias Bender Rønnenfelt and Loke Rahbek of Sexdrome, co-owner of Posh Isolation, is Vår, once known as Danish duo WAR.
In old Norse, Vår translates to spring.
Vår will play their first US show this spring on June 17th as part of L Magazine’s Northside Festival 2012, for Sacred Bones’ Glasslands showcase. Sharing the stage will be Crystal Stilts, Amen Dunes, Warthog (Chris Hansell ex- The Men) & Wymond Miles. Not to be missed. Sacred Bones will also be releasing Vår’s debut album in early 2013.
That’s the poetic, foggy video for “In Your Arms (Final Fantasy)” directed by Kristian Emdal of the band Lower, just unveiled on Pitchfork.
