Uniform: The Shadow Of God's Hand

Customarily, the visual accompaniments to recent singles of New Yorker's Uniform have been as fantastic as Shame, their latest album itself, and the new video for The Shadow Of God's Hand is not an exception. Directed and edited by John Bradburn, the clip comes with a profound theme, and like its predecessors, it affects deeply.

Vocalist Michael Berdan explains: “The central theme behind The Shadow of God’s Hand are the inherent contradictions present in conventional Christianity. I was brought up with this idea of ‘act right or you’re going to hell.’ I’ve listened to family members as they worried themselves to tears over the fate of a loved one’s soul. To me, the concept of a punitive God is antithetical to the comfort I derive from a spiritual practice. Does God serve to comfort or chastise? Does following Christ’s teachings serve to create a kinder, more equitable world or have those teachings become so perverted that they simply stand as tools of control? For many, there is a fine line in their belief structure between salvation and damnation. This song attempts to touch on these paradoxes.” 

Uniform have also announced a 27-date run across the UK and Europe in Spring 2022 alongside Pinkish Black.
