Hello!

We are excited to share Manoj Leonel Jahson’s video for “Ur Life One Night” which premiered today at Rolling Stone. I was really obsessed with working with a director in India because it seemed crazy that they have the biggest film industry in the world and yet I’d never made a video there. I feel really privileged to have connected with Manoj and to have this video. Check it out here.

Here is a bit about the video from Manoj himself:

When we first spoke with UMO, the idea of creating something abstract yet fun, for their single ‘Ur Life One Night’ sounded very exciting. I am deeply inspired by the quirky Indian magical-realism from our mythology and wanted to create something rooted but still visually appealing. The music lent a dream-like quality and the lyric pushed us to the motif of the Goddess being pursued, yet always being out of reach.The visual language naturally led to borrowing heavily from Traditional Asian Art including miniature paintings from the Mughal period to create multiple dreams-capes and ended up being a sexually charged riot with a fair dose of humor and symbolism.
