Denmark’s heavily atmospheric and strikingly beautiful septet Under Byen recently released their video for “Kapitel 1” (available on Vimeo), along with the mp3 download for the song (available for posting).
Directed once again by visual artist Sidse Carstens, who was behind their video for “Alt Er Tabt” (All is lost), the clip focuses on a few dramatically coiffed characters, each enacting individualized, powerful gestures, collectively focusing on their hair. As the director states, “I’ve decided to do this as a piece of art, not a music video in the common sense of the word. I often work with different characters in my movies.”
“Kapitel 1″ (Chapter 1) is taken from Under Byen’s recently released fourth album, Alt Er Tabt, available now on Paper Bag Records.
