Purple premieres Uni’s next music video “Electric Universe”

Purple presents “Electric Universe”, the latest music video by psychedelic rock band, Uni, consisting of Kemp Muhl (bass and vocals), Nico Fuzz (vocals and guitar), and David Strange (guitar). The music video is directed by band member Charlotte Kemp Muhl, who also plays bass in THE GOASTT and on Jack White‘s new album.

Nikola Tesla discovered infinite energy from the vacuum of space, then his whole lab was shut down by the big wigs of the gasoline mafia and he died penniless and half insane in the New Yorker hotel, murmuring to a pigeon on his sill.

Then years later, CERN collided particles in search of the holy grail, the smallest pixel of the universe. “But it’s turtles all the way down!” An old woman shouted in the back of cosmology lecture- the world, she said, rests on the back of a giant tortoise. When the astronomer asked what the tortoise stands on, she replied: “You’re very clever, young man, very clever. But it’s turtles all the way down!”

Now we eat genetically modified bananas while petting glow in the dark cats under fluorescent LEDs, gazing into the abyss of our cellular screens- a mirror for the alter ego. The digital super self, Plato’s Cave of pixels, the Übermensch of the dark web. We have blue and red electrical wires instead of veins, bulbs for eyes, computer chips for brains, gasoline for blood and ones and zeros for genitalia. Welcome to the Electric Universe.” — Charlotte Kemp Muhl
