Strangeness - Video by Luís Filipe Cunha



Strangeness - Greta Aagre & Erik Honoré (HD Version) on Vimeo.


(NB: A lower resolution version can be found HERE if you have problems with the HD version - although it's worth waiting for the HD version to buffer, both for the quality of the images and of the sound)



Portuguese artist Luís Filipe Cunha has made this evocative video for Greta Aagre/Erik Honoré's song Strangeness.
