It seems like a very long time ago electronic 3 piece Moderat, the amalgamation of eclectic duo Modeselektor and techno don Apparat first announced they’d be following up their enormously successful eponymous first album together with a second full length studio effort entitled ‘Moderat II’ and we waited patiently for new content. The wait to hear part of the sophomore album was shortened when the trio revealed that they would be dropping the first single ‘Bad Kingdom’ on July 12th and then released their full album to critical acclaim at the end of the summer.
We were fortunate enough to catch the trio in action at this years Eastern Electrics Festival before Apparat sadly injured himself in a motorcycle accident in Berlin forcing them to postpone the rest of their planned tour as Moderat. We have good news for fans disheartened by the wait until the recommencement of the tour as Moderat in conjunction with UNICEF have today revealed the new video accompaniment to ‘Gita’, the second single to be made available from their album ‘Moderat II.
A coordinated project between UNICEF and Monkeytown/ Mute, the video puts the spotlight on the ground breaking #ENDviolence against children initiative, a global movement to raise awareness and spark local action to combat violence against children by making ‘the invisible, visible’. A worthwhile cause we think you’ll all agree.
Check out the video to ‘Gita’ below.
