Watch: Moderat – Reminder

Moderat has been teasing with the release of their 3rd full-length for a while, and today we’ve finally been given a taste of III with Reminder, the first single taken from the upcoming album. Moderat‘s ability to take elements of left-field dance music to the popular form is back in full-force with the group finding that negative space between an act like Radiohead and a dance floor at FWD. The video is reportedly about  “a rebellious teenager (that) slaves away in a dystopian world, harvesting crystals from a vast grey landscape.” The monochrome imagery emphasises the sadness in the vocal delivery which is given a lot of buoyancy by the dubstep arrangement that underpins the track. Moderat, it seems are very much sticking to the principles that made their self-titled debut the game-changer it was. Stream the video below and look out for the album, which is set for release in April.
