Unknown Mortal Orchestra unveil video

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have unveiled their new video for "Ur Life One Night

With a bolstered sound that incorporates funk-infused synths and emotionally charged lyrics, Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s third album, Multi-Love, which could quite possibly be more experimental than the previous two. Today Unknown Mortal Orchestra have released a new video for their track, “Ur Life One Night”, featuring a vast and kaleidoscopic collection of stories, colors, and visual effects. Director Manoj Leonel Jahson sought out inspiration in Traditional Asian Art through the incorporation of Mughai-era miniature paintings and more. Here is what he had to say about the film:

“When we first spoke with UMO, the idea of creating something abstract yet fun, for their single ‘Ur Life, One Night’ sounded very exciting. I am deeply inspired by the quirky Indian magical-realism from our mythology and wanted to create something rooted but still visually appealing. The music lent a dream-like quality and the lyric pushed us to the motif of the Goddess being pursued, yet always being out of reach.”

After touring all through May and June, UMO will return to the road in August with performances across the U.S. and Europe. Upcoming tour dates include London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and regional dates across the UK in September. Multi-Love is out now via Jagjaguwar. All tour dates are below:
