The Universal Thump ‘DARKENED SKY’ music video preview

By on October 11, 2012

‘Darkened Sky’ is the second single & music video from The Universal Thump‘s eponymous double album, released this month in the USA.
The video is a stunning, bird’s eye view of the planet in 1969-1971, captured on Super 8 film by  lead singer, Greta Gertler‘s grandfather, whom she didn’t know, on his travels around the world. Gertler writes about ‘Darkened Sky’:
“Audiences have often singled this song out at our live shows. It explores the stormy beginnings of a relationship. The video consists mainly of impressionistic footage that my grandfather shot on Super 8 film. Somehow his exploration of space, distance, separation and color gently resonate with and support the song.”

Eponymous double-album available now on Bandcamp (CD & digital), iTunes (Australia & USA), Amazon and via MGM Distribution/Foghorn Records(Australia).
