As well as being confirmed to play this year’s ATP Nightmare Before Christmas Festival on December 9th, Baltimore trio Future Islands have today posted this new video for ‘Give Us The Wind’ – a stand out track from their latest album, ‘On The Water’.

Influenced by the black-and-white simplicity of old Friend pop videos from the ’70s, director Mike Anderson shot the video on 16mm film without concern for a narrative. “Mostly it’s what you (or I, I suppose) see when you close your eyes and listen to the song,” says Anderson. “The greatest thing about working with Future Islands is their total unwavering sincerity and courage with their music. There isn’t any bullshit or irony at all: I love it.  It really resounds with me. If you’re going to say it, say it like you mean it. “
