Music Video Friday: Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Necessary Evil

We blogged about “Multi-Love” by Unknown Mortal Orchestra back in May last year. While the video for “Multi-Love” was a glitchy, abstract affair set in an unpopulated 3D world, “Necessary Evil” looks more like a straightforward 2D cartoon. It’s not that simple – director Sean Solomon describes it as “an abstract love story about two characters whose insecurities and paranoia eventually drive them apart.” Sean Solomon is a multi-talented chap – as well as being an artist and director, he plays in a band called Moaning. Have a look at his website, it’s full of fun little animations and drawings.

If you enjoyed the video, you’ll probably enjoy this live performance on for Seattle-based KEXP radio.
