New Video: The Swooning Romanticism and 80s Post-Punk Revivalism of Communions’ “Forget It’s A Dream”

Comprised of brothers Martin and Mads Rehof, along with Jacob van Deurs Formann and Frederik Lind Köppen, the Danish quartet Communions have received both national and international attention across the blogosphere for shimmering and plaintive pop songs that sound as though they owe a major sonic debt to The Smiths; however, instead of the material possessing Morrissey’s bitterly ironic lyrics, the Danish quartet’s material possesses a swooning Romanticism — the sort that will arguably remind you of the urgency of first love, as you’ll hear on “Forget It’s A Dream,” the latest single off the quartet’s recently released self-titled EP.

The recently released official video for the song is shot in a stunningly gorgeous and cinematic black and white, and captures beautiful, brooding young people and love’s innate and profoundly simple beauty. Paraphrasing an old song, here a kiss can be more than just a kiss and a simple touch  from a lover can be the most wonderful thing in the entire world.
