Death From Above 1979 – One + One [Music Video]

Wasn’t aware of the new Death From Above 1979 single and music video which came out on February 3, 2021. (Always check the emails!)
One + One is taken from their upcoming album Is 4 Lovers which comes out on March 26, 2021 via Universal Music Canada.
More dancey than punk but still a fun track to listen to.

About the track and music video:
“‘One + One’ is a love song,” says Grainger.
“It’s the karmic sequel to Romantic Rights. My wife, Eva [Michon] became pregnant not long after we started working on the song and after hearing an early version she said, ‘I wish this song was dancier’. So I went back into the studio and re-worked the drums. As the record was taking shape, every time I would come home from the studio the baby would start dancing in Eva’s belly. Even before I walked in the room the party would start. One plus one is three, that’s magic!”

In the music video, created as a collage of disparate frames and moments inspired by the photography of artist David Hockney, was shot in Marmora, Ontario and directed by Michon, who also helmed the band’s documentary, Life After Death from Above 1979 (2014).

“Since we started playing people would come up to the stage and after and say: ‘I can’t believe there’s just two of you,’” explains Grainger. “The video for ‘One + One’ is Eva’s way of showing that our band is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s Death From Above 1979 in multitudes.”
