Fleet Foxes, "Grown Ocean"

  • Sweeping vistas and smiling faces abound in the first video for Seattle band's upcoming record.

  • Tags:

    The first video for Fleet Foxes' upcoming sophomore release Helplessness Blues, for the song "Grown Ocean," is full of grainy footage of Pacific Northwestern landscapes intermixed with shots of the Seattle folksters recording the new album in various studios. Singer Robin Pecknold said they used a bunch of new instruments on the recording, including "the 12-string guitar, the hammered dulcimer, zither, upright bass, wood flute, tympani, Moog synthesizer, the tamboura, the fiddle, the marxophone, clarinet, the music box, pedal steel guitar, lap steel guitar, Tibetan singing bowls, [and] vibraphone." No idea what most of those are, but since we're talking about Fleet Foxes, they probably sound like angels singing.

    Helplessness Blues is out May 3.
