Unknown Mortal Orchestra pubblicano il nuovo video ‘Weekend Run’ è il primo singolo pubblicato dalla band di Ruban Nielson dopo l’uscita dell’ottimo ‘Sex & Food’ (2018 per Jagjaguwar).

Gli Unknown Mortal Orchestra sono una delle più importanti realtà indipendenti, di orgini neozelandesi ma ormai in pianta stabile negli states tra Los Angeles e Portland.

Del nuovo album Ruban dice: “Lavoro per fare musica che renda positive le giornate di qualcuno e penso che splenderanno con Weekend Run.”

Dopo aver pubblicato ‘Sex & Food’ e ‘IC-01 Hanoi’, nato dalle session di ‘Sex & Food’, gli UMO hanno collaborato con Free Nationals and Daniel Caesar, Westerman e Soccer Mommy.

The band’s debut self-titled album was released 21 June 2011 on Fat Possum Records. The album quickly received critical acclaim. Ruban promoted a ‘Kiwi Edition’ of the album on his Instagram, which includes a bonus track. Pitchfork gave the album an 8.1, describing that with “an expert use of space rare for such a lo-fi record, UMO manages a unique immersive and psychedelic quality without relying on the usual array of bong-ripping effects.”[7]

In the spring of 2012, the band won the Taite Music Prize for the album.[8] Although the nominated Unknown Mortal Orchestra did not win Best Alternative Album, Nielson took home the title of Best Male Artist at the 47th annual Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.
