    Black Marble has released a new video today for their track "Woods," described by Chris Stewart as a poeticized vision of an escape that leads nowhere. After a trip to a WWII concentration camp, Stewart found himself thinking about the current refugee crisis and the concept of an escape that has no proper end. The video follows a group of runaways fleeing deep into the woods from an unknown encampment. The sound of a helicopter off in the distance makes it clear that they are being chased, but the ultimate fate of these escapees is never determined. The songs fast-paced drum beat and light, airy synth work perfectly accompany the contrast depicted between the freedom of escape and the fear of not knowing where to escape to.

    "Woods" is the single from Black Marbles latest album It's Immaterial. Check out the video above.
