David Lehnberg & Elin Lindfor are the Swedish duo behind The Deer Tracks who style their music as “Northern Lights Electronica” which is perfect because that’s exactly how their music sounds. It flashes and gleams in and out of view like the aurora borealis themselves, a rare and remarkable sound that focuses in vivid contrasts. “The universe has its own way of course connecting,” says Lehnberg of the pair’s musical projects, which feature an ever-rotating cast of collaborators, he and Lindfor are the only two constant members.
In their video for “Divine Light” figures entwine and entrance against a rainbow backdrop of repeating and changing colors and shapes. Their latest project, dubbed The Archer Trilogy has been released in three parts, and this track comes off the third installment. Look for the entire project out on July 5 of this year, and watch the dynamic clip below. Also check out their host of SXSW appearance dates if you’re heading down to Austin next week, after all, Texas is a far cry from Sweden and these two deserve to be heard in the flesh.
