Video Premiere: Small Feet – Rivers

small feet

Simon Stålhamre may be the creative force behind Small Feet, but it was not until he found the assistance of his band mates Jacob Snavely and Christopher Cantillo along with the inspiration of an island cabin residence that he was able to create music without self-sabotaging. It’s a good thing he finally did, and the result is music that showcases Stålhamre’s vocals and songwriting over gentle instrumentation and subtle electronic texture. It’s beautifully haunting music, that seems to reflect the dark, cold Scandinavian backdrop of Stålhamre’s past both physically and emotionally. The Swedish band recently signed with Seattle’s own Barsuk Records, who will be releasing their debut album, From Far Enough Away Everything Sounds Like the Ocean, on August 7th.

In anticipation to their upcoming record, KEXP is happy to host the U.S. video premiere for their song “Rivers”. In it, and capturing the chilling mood of the song brilliantly, Small Feet’s gentle guitar picking paired with ethereal sound textures that frame Stålhamre’s slightly reverberating voice is countered by the stark, striking visuals of a man running in reverse, consumed by fire. Watch the full video below and check out the rest of Small Feet’s growing discography at their on Soundcloud.
