Tour Unknown’s Geometrically-Enhanced Forest in ‘I Cry’ Video
Enigmatic producer preps 'I Cry' EP for Champion Sound
Northern Irish producer Unknown is well named, but only because his true identity has been successfully protected thus far. The man’s work is turning heads while churning the rumor mill. Everyone from La Roux to Skrillex has been proposed as the true source of these post-dubstep soundscapes, but if Sonny Moore were the culprit, we’re pretty sure Ellie Goulding wouldn’t be publicly asking after this particular mystery (via Twitter). The enigmatic beatsmith leaked out a series of numbered tracks last year, “#001″ to “#010,” but is making things official in 2013 with the I Cry EP, coming soon via Champion Sound.
Above you’ll find the titular track — featuring Dublin’s Gemma Dunleavy — and its accompanying video. The clip was shot in a Belfast forest, and features all the lush scenery you’d expect … and then some. In the midst of all that nature, strange geometric forms appear and rearrange themselves in incongruously organic ways. Meanwhile, the spacious track delivers rich tones, snapping rhythms, and soulful vocals. Don’t cry, Dunleavy — can’t you see how much beauty there is in this world video?
