Centimeter - Push Me Over
Taking us into Berlin’s dystopian Spreepark which has been featured in the likes of movies such as action-thriller Hanna is the latest music video and short film from Swedish indie-rock trio Centimeter. Titled “Push Me Over”, the song follows four teenage friends as they relive the forgotten glory of the East German theme park through its toppled plastic dinosaurs and rusting thrill rides. Despite the dreary atmosphere of Spreepark, the song is bright and cheery brimming with clanging piano keys and upbeat drum kicks. As lead vocalist Johan Landin explains, the music video is about seeing the light in the dark as he mentions below:
"The first time we sat together and looked at pictures of Spreepark, we instinctively felt that we were on the right track. One important thing for us though was that, even if the location itself seems to be utterly desolate and dreary, that it’s also capable of emitting hope and warmth. It would be too easy to just portray the cynical and gloomy aspects in such an environment"
While the end has come for Spreepark as it has been bought out by the city for redevelopment, you can enjoy the last moments of the park in the video below. You can also expect a longer version of the film some time in the fall.
