Here’s the first filmclip from UV Race’s Racism, which released late last year to typically rapturous reviews. The song is ‘Life Park’, and the video depicts the band hanging out in some nondescript area on the Merri Creek, which is near Melbourne. It’s another incendiary performance from the master thespians behind the Autonomy and Deliberation motion picture. Racism is available through In The Red.
In the desperate, post-apocalyptic world of Autonomy and Deliberation, UV Race isn’t a band any more. In a city [Melbourne] full of “strange wild creatures”, one member has sold his guitar and another works the streets. Vocalist Marcus has sorted his shit out and wants the band back.
That’s all I can glean from this trailer for the forthcoming Johann Rashid-directed Autonomy and Deliberation, which stars the UV Race and features heaps of Melbourne music celebrities. After that, a bunch of other funny exchanges occur and Marcus talks to himself in the mirror. It looks pretty good, and it premieres October 24 at Melbourne’s Westgarth Cinema. Of course, you could always go check it out this weekend at Sound Summit, followed by a Q&A with the director and two members (Dan Stewart and Al Montfort) of the band.
