Above & Beyond – Sun & Moon (Official Video) + Group Therapy Podcast

What many seem to forget is that EDM was formed on the basis of eliciting emotion – something Jono GrantTony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki of Above & Beyond have not lost sight of.

The Music Video

Hot off the release of their newest album, Group Therapy, we found it only appropriate to revisit the stunning MV to “Sun & Moon,” one of this year’s biggest hits being been played by every single relevant DJ one can think of.  The video’s bittersweet tone matches that of the song’s lyrics, gracefully walking you through the events of a man’s grief-stricken life; much the same way the best songs create a bond between the lyrics and composition, the video for “Sun & Moon” complements the song’s tone beautifully, almost enhancing the despair communicated through to the viewer. Anyone who has had their heart broken can and will relate to this video.

Disclaimer: Fanatics of uppity mindless live set footage that are inclined to comment on how “boring” this MV is beware – this video is not for you.
