Watch Unknown Mortal Orchestra's Sinister New Video For "From The Sun"

Unknown Mortal Orchestra are known for their intense, sometimes-creepy music videos, and their new video for ‘From The Sun’ is no exception.

This video, directed by Rick Alverson (who directed “The Comedy” with Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and James Murphy) portrays a withdrawn art student being slapped, emasculated, gagged, barfed on, kissed, shaken, spooned and pretty much anything else you could imagine by a group of what appears to be fellow students. All this mayhem occurs while Ruban Nielson’s peaceful voice sings “Isolation, it can put a gun in your hand,” over a classic UMO lo-fi psychedelic tune.
