have released their first music video in five years for the first song off of their latest album, In The Grace Of Your Love
. The song, "Sail Away," is a jumpy song with glossy synth lines and enough open and closes of the high-hat to ensure that, at the very least, your toes will be tapping along. The video for the song shows singer Luke Jenner embroiled in a battle with a enigmatic shiny bag. He rides it up and down the streets of Brooklyn before eventually being engulfed by it. Meanwhile, Vito Roccoforte and Gabe Andruzzi are dressed mysteriously in hats and trench coats, controlling the wind with a magical ram's horn and conch shell. Check it out below.
