‘Grown Ocean’ by Fleet Foxes

I have to confess that Fleet Foxes are one of those bands I forget that I love. For months they’ll gather dust in my iTunes, until randomly they’ll re-enter my life and I’ll fall in love all over again with them. It’s a pretty special relationship that we have and I kind of love them for it. The other day they released a new video for the track Grown Ocean and once more I asked myself why did I ever stop listening to these guys!

The grainy video is the perfect record of them recording their new album Helplessness Blues. It shows the band traveling across the country and recording in a few different studios. The piece really suits the feel of the track, and the rythm of the music and video complement each other beautifully. With the new album out at the start of May, I’m glad to report that Fleet Foxes are, once again, back in my life!

    I’m glad there’s people that share my feelings as well. They’re one of those bands that doesn’t call for attention, and only asks to be appreciated. Their songs always seem to perfectly suit inspirations I have at certain times in my life – and I can’t be more grateful for that. :3 Thank you for finding them again.

    Oh you are so right – and it all just came back to me listening and watching that beautiful clip. It’s gonna be a Fleet Foxes kinda day methinks!

    Same with me. I’ll forget all about them and all the sudden find them again. It’s becoming one of the things I like about them.
