Future Islands: Grease

Last year, Future Islands released the album On the Water, and they've been touring ever since. The record was—and is—odd and lovely and wildly underrated. And the beautiful, slightly sad, new video for "Grease" embodies all those sentiments.

Shot in a gorgeous 360 degree panning style, the black and white video is a slice often unkind, frequently lonely touring life of musicians. It embodies what it's like to keep trucking along (sometimes literally) without a lot of recognition or tangible results. The music business is like that for most. Often just because a band is good, doesn't mean it will be noticed. Hopefully this isn't one that falls through the cracks. [StereoGum]
