Lives of the Artists: Follow Me Down – UNKLE

By - August 18th, 2010

UNKLE is not only known for making envelope-pushing, contemplative music, but for visually arresting artistic collaborations as well. In anticipation of UNKLE’s six-song EP called The Answer, and in collaboration with Relentless Energy, a new film that simultaneously follows UNKLE’s James Lavelle on tour and snowboarders Jeremy Jones & Xavier de le Rue on their foray onto the treacherous terrains of Antarctica. Fusing both stories–that of Lavelle’s artistic innovation and the beauty of athletic ingenuity–director Ross Cairns (who also directed a video for a single on the new UNKLE EP)  crafts a film that will stream for free on Relentless Energy’s site beginning in September. The trailer for the film whets the appetite for what looks to be quite a multi-sensory experience. Check out the video after the jump.
