Only two weeks after releasing their song for this years Melodi Grand Prix, “Monument” has reached more than one million streams on Spotify, and almost 800 000 views on YouTube. Tonight KEiiNO premieres the official music video for “Monument” – probably their most spectacular to date.
During a span of three weeks last fall KEiiNO traveled from the south of Norway all the way up north, shooting the music video. The majestic Norwegian landscape stars as the leading role, and several hundred reindeers as the supporting act.
“The music video for whomever gets the chance to represent Norway in Eurovision, will be viewed by millions. Just look at our song “Spirit in the Sky” from 2019, the music video has already been viewed 8.5 million times. We take the role as ambassadors for Norway very seriously, and we hope the video for “Monument” will inspire people to come and visit our fantastic country when the pandemic ends”, says Tom Hugo.
“Through the music video we pay tribute to the amazing Norwegian nature, and our own monumental experiences in life and every-day-heroes. You can see me pick up a picture of us from Eurovision in 2019. When I joined KEiiNO I instantly got to new friends for life. The boys has really been part of realize my biggest dream, and has become a huge part of my life. They have become the monuments in my life,” says Alexandra Rotan.
“Preserving the Sámi culture and joik has been the core of KEiiNO since the beginning. And being able to introduce joik to the world through “Spirit in the Sky” in 2019 was extremely touching. I also have to say that joiking together with 30 000 people at Madrid Pride is a moment I will never forget,” are the words of Fred Buljo.
