Indie-rock duo Oxen have released their music video for their song ‘Dark and Depressive’ . Previously, the duo have been featured in Rolling Stone Germany as well as appearing in several playlists by Youtube tastemakers alexrainbird Music. As a result, Oxen are sitting with a tidy play count of just under 1 million across streaming platforms. Childhood friends who were destined to go on to create Oxen, Erik and Stefan grew up in Dalarna, Sweden. Oxen draw inspiration from music Erik and Stefan listened to while growing up as well as shared experiences. Their influences include the likes of Pixies and New Order. The video features instrumentals and vocals reminiscent of the 90’s indie grunge scene along with fitting visuals delivered in an unimpassioned way, that is complimentary for the tone of the song.
Oxen reveal the trials they went through to create the music video, “It was somewhat hard finding a film crew, or the money to pay them, when there was a raging pandemic going on. But there’s this kind of old school gym in the same building I live in and although neither of us got a lot of experience lifting heavy stuff, there was a certain vibe and smell that went well together with our visual goal for this video.”
