Watch the Official Music Video for Reptile Youth’s “Above”

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.
