Inspired by a song that combines bittersweet lyrics with uplifting electronic melodies, the video for Above & Beyond’s ‘Sun & Moon’ focuses on the pain and release of a couple’s break-up; showing that relationships live on forever in the memory.
With the video drawing its aesthetic cues from the legendary Northern Soul era, 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.
Just as ‘Sun & Moon’ finds its release through its emphatic, riff-based breakdown, the lead recognises the song and finds his own peace of mind the only way he knows – by dancing. Through a set of skilfully twisted and visually arresting dance moves straight out of the Northern soul era – where sad love songs like ‘Sun & Moon’ fuelled a generation of late night dancers lost in lyrics. In doing so, he finds his freedom… in the moment.
