Pain of Salvation’s Daniel Gildenlöw has checked in as follows about the clip:

We had the greatest time shooting this video. We went up north to an old fisher village where Johanna’s family has rented old fisher cabins in the summers since her father was a little child. I have spent time there with her since we met twenty years ago and I love the place. No phones, no television, just the ocean and nature and these old cabins. It seemed the perfect place to shoot the video for 1979. So, we spent a few days there, the entire band with families and Johanna’s sisters and their families, and we just had a wonderful time together. I remember standing in the store googling beer brands to find out which bottles had remained most the same since the 70s, hahaha.

“We had many scripted scenes that we shot but that never ended up in the final video – some nude bathing and Ragnar jumping into the water with his clothes on from a row boat. In the end Stefan Daniels (the director) decided to go with the small gestures and made Sandrian and his kite be the heart of the video, which was a perfect decision.

“My favorite clips are probably the ones at the breakfast table in the cabin and the one in front of the cinema, simply because, to me, they capture the air of the late 70s so perfectly, as I knew them. It almost hurts to watch those clips, and I’m close to tearing up every time. My intellect knows perfectly well that these are new recordings, but my heart connects at a split second and breaks from the loss of an era.”
