FM Belfast – “Underwear” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
FM Belfast are a Reykjavik-based dance trio who throw around the word “fun” a lot when describing their shows. Part of it, they admit, is their limited vocabulary, but mostly “fun” is just the goal: They gave away packs of gum and drawings at the SXSW appearances, they’ve closed shows with “The Power” by Snap! and covered “Killing In The Name.” This video has lots of fun dancing but also strikes an eerie note, since it focuses on the ideas that a) lots of people dance alone b) in their underwear and c) not many people look beautiful dancing, especially once they’re slowed down, sped up, or frozen. The result, however, is quite beautiful: Intimate, lonely, and still fun. The video was directed by DANIELS (Daniel Scheinert and Dan Kwan).
