Máni Orrason confronts the challenges of love in glitter-filled ‘I Swear It’s True’ video

Icelandic pop star Máni Orrason adds glitter to proceedings in the music video for his latest track I Swear It’s True.

At its core, the track is a love song dedicated to the circumstances of life. Not aimed at anyone in particular, it’s about those loops and obstacles that life throws in the way of those in love – preferably, of course, right when everything seems to be running smoothly, and you just want to hold on to this moment forever.

Máni’s newfound love, just having started, had to turn into a long distance relationship. Confronted with challenges many lovers have to face, he found himself yearning for the early days of their romance, when everything seemed so much easier. A pivotal moment turned into a pivotal song. And similar to the car ride, there’s no moving forward and no quick solution here either.

“When it’s us on the line, there’s no easy way out” Máni sings, managing to turn his dilemma into a powerful and hopeful song. Not at all in vain, because they are reunited at last.

Next month, Máni will be performing a few dates in the UK. He will support Ailbhe Reddy at The Islington on Thursday 4th April and will return later in the month at The Louisiana in Bristol with HAUX on Friday 26th April and at Islington Assembly Hall in London alongside Mogli on Sunday 28th April.

I Swear It’s True will form part of Baby Angel, an upcoming 6-track EP to be released in June 2019.
