Watch Cancer's breathtaking new video

Danish duo Cancer, consisting of Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild (When Saints Go Machine) and Kristian Finne Kristensen (Chorus Grant), released “Die One More Time” as the first single of Cancer’s forthcoming debut album a few weeks ago. Now the song has been beautifully visualised by the Copenhagen-based director Frederik Valentin, whose previous videos for artists like Complicated Universal Cum, Lust For Youth and Baby in Vain consistently have been thought-provoking, visually stunning and original.

“This is a bittersweet cocktail of death and karaoke poured by me and served for Cancer’s music” - says Frederik Valentin

“Die One More Time” is a song about the sorrow that comes with losing loved ones and how the experience stays with you forever. The chorus’ pivotal line is central to the song: “Each time I wake up/I die one more time. This is the largest abandoned factory in the world”.

As Nikolaj intensifies the line on every repetition the desperation and vulnerability inherent in the song will leave listeners moved and equally vulnerable. The enclosing guitars of Kristian Finne Kristensen, alongside the sublime bass lines and the tasteful drums emphasizes the fragility of “Die One More Time” in a brilliant way. On these new recordings Cancer have evoked a very special sonic space that brings some elements as close as possible while leaving others in the horizon - an open space that appear both minimalistic and extremely organic.

“Die One More Time” is the first single of Cancer’s forthcoming album Totem, which is to be released by Tambourhinoceros on Jan 27, 2017. “Die One More Time” is available on streaming and download platforms now. Pre-order the album here.
