“Simon,” the first music video by NYC-based foursome Una Lux reinforces the band’s style: beautiful, dense, and seductive. The clip depicts a story about fighting and accepting one’s demons, deep in the human subconscious where symbols assume physical form and color suffices for words.
Una Lux guitarist and director of the clip Matteo Liberatore explains, “The video is filled with homage. We tried to reference Vittorio Storaro’s use of lighting in ‘The Last Emperor,’ some of the poses in Caravaggio portraits, and the parapsychology of David Lynch’s films, and then we cut it like French New Wave.”
The video is also the story of the band members, their film industry friends, and the taco and beer-fueled discussions that eventually transformed an East Williamsburg living room into an ancient, mystic, and futuristic sanctuary of love and sensuality.
“I’ve always felt ‘Simon’ was about the need to be heard and understood, no matter who you are or what your mental state is,” Una Lux vocalist Kelso Norris says. “Simon just wants someone to understand him.”
Una Lux is currently finishing its debut EP with a release date to be announced soon. Intimate and yearning, this first group of Una Lux songs are being brought to the surface by producer Nick Sansano (Sonic Youth, Le Tigre, Public Enemy), who began working with the band in 2013 after recognizing their idiosyncratic style and ability to translate the human condition into something timeless.
