Sundara Karma have just unveiled the video for their new single One Last Night On This Earth. The song is taken from their forthcoming second album Ulfilas’ Alphabet, out March 1 via Chess Club/RCA. Watch the video for One Last Night On This Earth below.
The video was shot and directed by frontman Oscar Pollock and tells the story of an alien robot trying to deal with human emotions on the streets of South London. The video was shot on an hold handheld camera giving it the charme of a 90s home video.
Oscar Pollock comments on making the video:
I wanted to make a music video […] that relied upon the character and the location rather than perfection or meticulous lighting. I shot it all on an old Sony DCR-VX9000E and the batteries for the camera were horrendous so the camera could have cut out at literally any moment, meaning we could only really afford to do one shot of each scene. The benefit was that it that made it feel more like a documentary which was perfect.
Tickets for the band’s UK headline tour in April 2019 are on sale now. The tour includes stops at Manchester, Birmingham and London’s Brixton Academy. All dates and ticket links can be found below.
