Klyne today premiere the breathtaking video for their new song Lend Me Another Name, out now via Because Music. The video is produced by Grayskull and directed by Alan Masferrer, who tells the FADER: “As this is a such a hypnotic song, I approached the video in a very instinctive way. The first thing that came to my mind was the octopus and then the concept of the metamorphosis with the girl which fit with the lyrics.  The idea of the contortionist didn't come until a few days before the shoot. It didn't appear in the treatment and it wasn't until we were already casting when I realised we needed to take the body expression to its highest level. Luckily we were able to persuade our first choice, Dasha Sovik - an ex-Cirque Du Soleil contortionist - to take the role. She really nailed it and put all her courage into what was an extremely demanding shoot.”

Says Klyne’s Ferdous Dehzad: “Lend Me Another Name is about going through the difficulty of a break-up and the agonising doubt that goes along with it; having to deal with the sadness but still with the knowledge that it’s the best for both people involved. We love how Alan Masferrer envisioned these feelings completely in his own way.”

Lend Me Another Name is available as part of the Don’t Stop EP, the lead track of which boasts a video by acclaimed choreographer and filmmaker Holly Blakely, premiered via i-D last month.

Klyne are two 22 year olds - producer Dehzad and singer Nick Klein. The pair first met at school in the small city of Helmond in the Netherlands, before reconnecting at the dawn of their twenties and beginning work on their masterful fusion of Klein’s searing, soulful voice and Dehzad’s love of electronic music culture, including Erol Alkan, Soulwax and Tiga (the latter of which signed the producer - in the guise of TRACE7000 - to his Turbo Recordings label). Don’t Stop / Lend Me Another Name follows Klyne’s critically acclaimed debut Paralyzed EP for Aesop, as well as their maiden remix, a rework of Disclosure’s Omen feat. Sam Smith.

Following two packed out showcase shows at The Great Escape last month, Klyne play their first UK headline show for the Dummy presents Because Music event at the Ace Hotel, London on 29 June. Support comes from Denai Moore, with DJ sets from Metronomy and Jonjo Jury. The show is free with RSVP via http://www.acehotel.com/calendar/london/dummy-presents-because.
