‘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!
