iamamiwhoami @ Way Out West
Swedish electronic art, music & multimedia project iamamiwhoami, who has been accused of being Karin Dreijer Andersson of the Knife (who iamamiwhoami now shares a manager with), has been pretty quiet lately. There hasn't been a new video posted to their YouTube account (their main form of communication) since "clump" in July. Until today. Iamamiwhoami is back, though with not much more than a tease, and a mysterious one at that. Check out the new 37 second video "kin 20120611" below.
Not much was known about iamamiwhoami until they made their live debut in August at Sweden's Way Out West festival, a show I happened to be at. Led by Swedish singer-songwriter Jonna Lee, their live show was as over the top, intriguing, high budget and theatrical as their videos. Jonna performed the songs made famous via YouTube while an anonymous video team dressed all in black followed her every move which was in turn broadcast live on the screens by the stage. There were also video cameras set up above and below the stage, including inside the bed made of toilet paper... Just check out the pics (which I never posted before). They continue, with the new video, below...
