We partnered with Copenhagen’s globetrotting psychedelic indie outfit Reptile Youth to premier the official music video for “Above,” the second single from their latest album Rivers That Run for a Sea That is Gone. The band teamed up with director Lasse Martinussen for the track’s visual treatment. Martinussen explains:
The video is the result of my very first confrontation with the band years ago, where I witnessed one of their early shows. I heard about their crazy shows in China just before the show, so they already had this strange, almost ancient, mythology around them. The lead singer was beyond performing; almost sacrificing himself to his biggest belief, while the guy in the background was hypnotizing through the music. It was something I never experienced before, something tremendous, sexy, epic, violent and something I had to pursue. I tried to do with the video, what the performance did to me that night.
Rivers That Run for a Sea That is Gone is now available for purchase on iTunes.
