Watch Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Bittersweet ‘Hunnybee’ Video
Psych rockers Unknown Mortal Orchestra have unveiled the new video for “Hunnybee,” named after the middle name of frontman Ruban Nielson’s daughter.
In the new animated clip, a young woman is traveling alone on a train by scenic mountains and waterways while reading a book. Nielson’s daughter inspired the song’s lyrics, which describe the wistfulness of distance with lines like “a week is such a long time” and “Don’t be a modern stranger.” While the visuals begin in a serene setting, there’s also warning signals to take care ahead, mirroring the song’s bittersweet sentiments. “Hunnybee, Hunnybee,” Nielson sings. “There’s no such thing as sweeter a sting.”
