Video: Simian Mobile Disco "Your Love Ain't Fair"
- Words: Cam Curran
The stomping, hazy house of Simian Mobile Disco's "Your Love Ain't Fair" receives the visual treatment from Laurence Stephens in this video—which illuminates the track's dusk-lit synthesizers and kick quite literally with a slideshow display of fluorescent bulbs, incandescent ceiling plans, and warehouses bathed in floodlights. A single from their recently released, XLR8R Pick'd Unpatterns LP, the tune gallops through technicolor synths that detune around Baroque, echoed vocals while electricity flips on and off through a variety of lighting fixtures. The video charmingly evokes the idea that "Your Love Ain't Fair" has a crackling energy all its own. Simian Mobile Disco have also just announced a slew of North American tour dates for July, September, and December. You can check out the duo's tour schedule, along with a BBC recording of SMD's recent performance at Barcelona's 2012 Sónar festival (where XLR8R was also in
