Today Frontperson, the musical collaboration between Kathryn Calder (vocalist and keyboardist for The New Pornographers) and Mark Andrew Hamilton (AKA Woodpigeon) shares the beautifully interwoven, conceptual duet “Ostalgie (Für C. Bischoff)” the second single and video from the sophomore album Parade due for release April 29, 2022 digitally and on limited edition CD and LP via Oscar St. Records.

Mark Andrew Hamilton shares: “‘Ostalgie (Für C. Bischoff)’ is softly inspired by the shadows of the formerly-separated Berlin, created as a dialogue between two characters on opposite sides of the psychological effect known in Germany as mauer im kopf (or 'wall in the head'). But it’s not just a Cold War melodrama set to music—I mean, what do we know about life on either side of the Berlin Wall? Still, there aren’t many images quite so evocative and frustrating as a wall between people who should be left together, and here we are in 2022 still building them and living behind them.”

Regarding the video, Hamilton further explains: “The video is inspired by the notion of distance and pandemic restrictions and separations, shot separately in our homes on opposite ends of the world’s second biggest country and then edited / manipulated by editor David Fortin of the Cinematheque québécois in Montréal. The video is also our tribute to both Sinead O’Connor’s iconic ’Nothing Compares 2 U’ video, in which nothing is more interesting than watching a floating head sing, and the just, if not even more iconic Ampelmann.”
