Indie Music Month Video Premiere: Unwritten Law, ‘Starships And Apocalypse’

As part of MTV’s Indie Music Month, we’re premiering videos from some of the most exciting artists in the indie music scene. Kicking off our final week of video premieres, we have Warped Tour vets Unwritten Law and their anthemic new single, “Starships And Apocalypse.” Put your moshing caps on for this one, folks.

“Starships And Apocalypse” is primarily a performance video, taking place on the well-lit stage of what looks to be the seediest, most bedraggled underground club ever. A very shirtless Scott Russo belts out “Take my hand, off we go / to La la land,” from behind a pair of pitch-black Wayfarers. The rest of Unwritten Law thrashes dutifully around him.

The song “Starships And Apocalypse” is about a fast-talking woman who knows just the right ways to lose control, and we occasionally catch glimpses of this femme fatale — a mysterious blonde with a penchant for leather — as she writhes beneath a spotlight. Coupled with Russo’s partial nudity, the sexiness is off the charts here.

Unwritten Law’s sixth studio album, Swan, on which “Starships And Apocalypse” appears, is due out tomorrow, March 29.
