Indie Music Videos: Fleet Foxes “Grown Ocean” Video

Seattle indie band Fleet Foxes premiered their video for “Grown Ocean” today on Vimeo. “Grown Ocean” is a track from their upcoming album, Helplessness Blues.Blues will be released on May 3, 2011 on Sub Pop Records.

Says lead singer Robin Pecknold about the album:

I think this music draws influence and inspiration from popular music and folk rock of the mid ‘60s to the early ‘70s, folks like Peter Paul & Mary, John Jacob Niles, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Neil Young, CSN, Judee Sill, Ennio Morricone, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, The Zombies, SMiLE-era Brian Wilson, Roy Harper, Van Morrison, John Fahey, Robbie Basho, The Trees Community, Duncan Browne, the Electric Prunes, Trees, Pete Seeger, and Sagittarius, among many others. I’d say it’s a synthesis of folk rock, traditional folk, & psychedelic pop, with an emphasis on group vocal harmonies. Astral Weeks was a big inspiration on this album, if not always in sound then in approach. The raw emotion in Van Morrison’s vocals and the trance-like nature of the arrangements were very inspiring for this album!
