Baltimore synthpop outfit, Future Islands
, are releasing their forthcoming album, The Far Fields
on April 7th and theyve just released a video for one of the tracks, "Ran". If youve ever seen Future Islands live, you know frontman, Samuel T. Herring, is not one to stand still. At all. So, this video is ridiculously fitting.
The video starts out with the band rehearsing in a room then pans out as Samuel T. Herring is sprinting out the front door. Herring is filmed sprinting across the countryside, through the woods, and down a highway. Herring says he came up with the concept of the video the day it was filmed as he hasn't "run in like, eight years!" The song is all about desperation and a broken heart so the only natural response is run away.
Future Islands will be on a UK and North American tour starting April 27th, following their album drop.
