Unknown Mortal Orchestra share video for latest track “First World Problem” — watch

The video plays up the song's lyrics and musical melody through choreography

    Unknown Mortal Orchestra resurfaced back in May with the release of standalone single “First World Problem”, the band’s first new track since 2015’s acclaimed Multi-Love. Today, the song’s music video has arrived.

    The video, which was directed by James Lees and choreographed by Kianí Del Valle, shows a couple passionately dancing as the scene (somewhat) seamlessly changes from their living room to a desolate desert. “I aimed to create a dialogue between two art forms — film and music,” Del Valle said of the video. “I wanted the video to be a response to the band’s lyrics and musical melodies, rather than showing literally what the song is saying. I am a big fan of silent films and how unspoken language can add a second layer to speech.”
