Following the release of their fourth album ‘Shore’ back in September, Fleet Foxes are now sharing the video for ‘Sunblind’.
Directed by Sean Pecknold, Robin Pecknold adds of the song, “It really is this big centerpiece and is the anchor that all the other songs are tied to. I wanted to make a song that celebrated my heroes in an explicit way — people who have passed and who I want to honor in the music. That was a big focus of mine, helping them stay alive through these memories. Music is this weird invisible form of immortality for these people, and I wanted to do it in a joyous way and reframe some of the sorrow of loss into a kind of celebration.”
