Foals Share Animated Video For Into The Surf

Tuesday, 08 October 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Foals have shared an animated video for their latest track.

Into The Surf, taken from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 2’, now has an accompanying visual narrative. Inspired by frontman Yannis Philippakis' Greek family background, it relays the tale of two people trying to reach each other across the backdrop of a stunning, deep blue mix of ocean and sky.

The video was directed by Steve Warne, who worked on Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. He said:

“The world of the song is so distinctive it seemed right to try and reflect it fairly closely with a mix of shimmering, expansive visuals with a human intimacy. The visual motifs were linked closely to the lyrics. By mixing traditional stop-motion with live action and digital animation techniques the idea was to aim for something that felt just about tangible but almost out of reach, echoing the themes of the song in a heightened dreamlike way. A little bit of reality with a dose of mystery.”

The follow up to ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1’ will arrive on October 18. The band have teased a UK tour for 2020, but no official dates have been confirmed.
