The video of The Kalweit Project's second single, “Seriously Furious”, from their EP Swiss Bikes, was shot entirely in studio by Atraz & Emilia Videography at Gallery Lab in Aradeo, province of Lecce, Apulia region, Italy. Directed by singer-songwriter & frontwoman Georgeanne Kalweit, a Minneapolis native & Italian resident of many years. Georgeanne is also a visual artist interested in performance art. She created the idea for the storyboard and all the costumes inspired by, and out of total respect for, the Lotería Mexicana Bingo board and card game with all their iconic, cult status images. 9 characters from the cards are brought to life and put together in twos to exchange various objects that they receive symbolically through a sort of wheel of fortune. They all choose openness and curiosity and, as the lyrics profess, “the beauty of the world” found in small things & gestures over gratuitous violence which comes flying at them in the shape of a gun, which they all refuse & instead come together in a chorus. El Mundo finally 'takes a stand' against gun violence with them. The recognition and tolerance of 'the other' is also a reminder of the importance of going beyond cliches and social stereotypes to create a more peaceful world.

Swiss Bikes, the 5 song Ep, from alternative/experimental to post-punk-rock with a tiny touch of retro pop embellishment. Georgeanne Kalweit: lyrics & melodies, Giammarco Magno: composed the music. Collaboration with musician & producer Giovanni Ferrario (Giovanni Ferrario Alliance, prev: Scisma, Micevice) brought out just the right nuances in the arrangements: sparse and gaunt, yet authentic and thoughtful in the quieter, more personal songs, and truly high-powered, on the other hand, in the songs which are more intense and tough.
