Video premiere: Australian icons The Church debut 'Undersea'

Wendy Geller

Beloved Australian icons the Church released their 26th album, Man Woman Life Death Infinity, on Friday (Oct. 6). This marks their second effort with a rejuvenated line-up, including Steve Kilbey, Peter Koppes, Tim Powles and Ian Haug.

Singer, lyricist and bassist Kilbey explains this is what he terms the band’s “water record” — “I guess water is my element,” he notes. “I’ve always marveled at the sea and rivers and rain. It wasn’t conscious at all but on reflection, it definitely is a preoccupation on this record.”

True to that sentiment, Yahoo Music is excited to premiere the video for single “Undersea,” for fans to enjoy.

“Sitar, sake, smoke and mirrors,” is the band’s description of the video. “[We] ushered this song in from the ether…from the self-shot footage that we each shot near water, Eden Mulholland has directed this into a honey drenched, ‘Wes Anderson-ish,’ bees-eye view of humans foraging through inner space.”
