ABOVE & BEYOND | 'SUN & MOON'
DIRECTED BY FERRY GOUW
Drawing aesthetic cues from the Northern Soul era, the "Sun & Moon" video makes a direct link between the legendary 70s dance music scene and Above & Beyond's unique take on modern club culture. ?Styled perfectly with a tartan Harrington jacket and a crisp shirt emblazoned with an Above & Beyond "Sun & Moon" Northern Soul badge, the lead male is seen re-living the relationship and the final breakdown through a series of emotive flash back scenes and some lonesome, drink and music-fuelled longing. With the song finding its release through its emphatic, riff-based breakdown, the male recognizes the song and finds his own peace of mind the only way he knows - by dancing. Through a set of skillfully twisted and visually arresting dance moves straight out of the Northern soul era, where sad love songs like "Sun & Moon" fueled a generation of late night dancers lost in lyrics, he finds freedom in the moment - to the surprise and dismay of the other people in the bar.
The video embodies Above & Beyond's talent for finding every possible platform to bring their emotional trance sound to enthusiastic audiences the world over
