Video: Future Islands – Give Us the Wind Video: Future Islands – Give Us the Wind

Future Islands have unfurled the latest video of one of Pinpoint’s favorite albums this year On the Water. The video is for the song “Give Us The Wind” which is personally my top track of the album.
“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. ”
