Music video for All Is Not Lost performed by About Group. The melancholic and soulful voice of Alexis Taylor overlays an explosive, arborous montage in the video for About Group's new single "All Is Not Lost." The dramatic images were selected by the Swedish director and artist Henrik Håkansson from his own project, "Aug. 11, 2012 Symptoms Of The Universe Studies (6min 29 Sec)", that focuses on two individual black alder trees being torn apart in footage that was taken from different angles and at contrasting speeds. Spliced in with this is slow-motion film of butterflies in flight that was shot by Håkansson at high frame rates of 4000-7000 per second. The trees in this video were already dead before the explosions.
Directed By Nick Waplington"Don't Worry" is the new single released from About Group's second album, "Start and Complete", and quite possibly one of the loveliest, most straightforward pop songs the band have recorded to date.Don't Worry is taken from the album 'Start And Complete' which can be bought here - http://www.dominorecordco.com/uk/albums/21-01-11/start-and-complete/
You're No Good is the first single from About Group's forthcoming second album, and will be released on Domino on March 14th 2011.You're No Good is a re-versioning of Terry Riley's landmark 1967 track, on which the minimalist composer took Harvey Averne's latin-tinged soul track, You're No Good, and turned it into a free flowing piece of tape loop improvisation. Running two copies of the track alongside one another, Riley weaved between the tapes, dropping out and slowing down the song to create what may well have been the world's first ever remix.About Group are:Charles Hayward (This Heat, Camberwell Now, Monkey Puzzle Trio, Clear Frame)John Coxon (Spring Heel Jack, Spiritualized) Pat Thomas (has played with Derek Bailey, Tony Oxley, Jimmy Carl Black and Eugene Chadbourne amongst countless others)Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip)www.facebook.com/DominoRecordsFrance
