watch: “green sea” – fear of men

A few weeks ago, you got to hear a taste from London/Brighton-based Fear Of Men, including their newest track “Green Sea.”  Now they’ve released a video for that track, which you can watch below.

It’s got the hazy visuals that you might expect from a dream pop song, but it’s combined with the somewhat jarring clips of an unseen individual systematically smashing a row of vases with a sledgehammer.

One thing I like about this video is that, while you can see members of the band playing throughout the video, it’s shot in such a way that retains a lot of their mystery.  Just when you think you’re going to get a clear view of one of them, the camera zooms in, goes out of focus, or cuts to a different scene.  Definitely leaves you with a “wanting more” feeling


Related Cute-Kid Anecdote: I happened to be watching this video with a 6-year-old boy, and midway through the video he announced, “I think they’re gonna smash up all those jars.” 

If you can’t watch the video right now, you can still give it a listen:


This song was just released as a 7″ today via SEXBEAT.  Take a look at how awesome the white vinyl is:

A-side: “Green Sea”

B-side: “Born”
