Robaat is a duo comprising Julie Alapnes Norman and Kine Yvonne Berntsen, whose previous band The Bon Bons won Bandwagon,  Norway's annual music competition for budding artists.

The duo's new single “Poor Old Billy” was shot in Målselva river in northern Norway in July, and features three male dancers braving the 6C  waters, with a stunning snow-peaked mountain in the background.

The three dancers are Inge Martin Helgelsen, Nils Foshaug and Lars Frihetsli from the Kartellet dance company based in Tromsø.

“It is impressive to see what they could do in the seven degree water. They were there for 20 minutes at a time for almost the whole day,” band member Kine Yvonne Berntsen told local newspaper i Tromsø. “They are real, stout-hearted north Norwegian men in the stream.”
