Steve Angello made it known that he planned to present some pretty grand audiovisual concepts with his first post-Swedish House Mafia album, Wild Youth. After revealing a visceral music video for “The Ocean” last month, the Size Records founder has now premiered the official music video for “Tiger,” which occurs to us as being quite a bit more conceptually challenging.
The video for “Tiger” opens with a Swedish phrase which ominously translates to “the journey will be easier without the weight of the past.” Serene shots tell the fantastic story of a mythical order being ravaged by cloaked specters, and like the video for “The Ocean,” the cinematographers didn’t shy away from the portrayal of graphic violence.
The closing scenes of the video for Steve Angello‘s “Tiger” is the most cryptic from a storytelling perspective, which makes us wonder if additional videos will stitch together the missing plot points.
