….as with the 2 previous videos from Danish septet Under Byen´s album Alt Er Tabt, “Unoder” is a focus on the aesthetic details that reveals a surrealistic surrounding.
This six minute, Japanese-inspired video, follows a young girl through her last living moments, and is directed by Danish/Afghanic director Manyar I. Parwani. The movie director explained that he agreed to do a music video because:
“Music is always my first inspiration when I work with movie scripts. How music moves me in body and soul is so seductive that it takes me places, I can only otherwise experience in dreams. Under Byen s “Unoder” expresses that XX that I have longed for. Now the song has marked me to such a degree that I´m able to move without any sense of melody but give in to indescribable beauty. Why I chose to write and direct the video for “Unoder” is quite simple. I had no choice.”
“Unoder” is off Under Byen’s recently released fourth album, Alt Er Tabt, available now on Paper Bag Records.
“…hard to get out of your head once you’ve given yourself over to it…Under Byen give themselves over completely to a particular way of doing things, in the process crafting an album whose utter strangeness is arresting and whose consistency of vision is impressive.” – Pitchfork, 7.6 Review
