Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "First World Problem"

Unknown Mortal Orchestra Provides "First World Problem" w/ A Gorgeous, Desert-Clad Visual

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "First World Problem"

At the very top of May, Unknown Mortal Orchestra put in an early bid for song of the summer with the electric, Neptunes-channeling loosie "First World Problem." Sitting pretty on many summer radio dials, the track needs little if any assistance in cementing its place amongst the warmer months' finest selections. Today, however, the track is visualized by director James Lees and choreographer Kianí Del Valle, who take "FWP" from the bedroom to the desert with a stunning portrayal of the give, take, push and pull of an embattled relationship through beautifully conflicted contortions. You can watch it down below, but if you're looking to get acquainted with Unknown Mortal Orchestra beyond their 2016 output, we implore you to jump back to their 2015 release, Multi-Love, for a proper intro.
