Following the release of new album II and a performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Unknown Mortal Orchestra have revealed the video for the beautiful Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark).
First featured on our new music Post Playlist last September, the track set the path for more hazy, spaced-out indie from the trio who list Syd Barrett, Wu Tang Clan, Al Green and King Tubby among their influences.
In addition to the video the band have announced six performances at SXSW alongside their UK tour dates in May. Watch the video and see the tour dates below.
