Hopewell – Islands

We are happy to announce that the video for “Island” exists and is ready for your eyes.

The band’s good friend Art Boonparn (who’s done videos for The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Coldcave & The Silent League) managed to pretty accurately represent the spirit of the song by shooting hand held super 8 scenes in and around Brooklyn and mixing them together with archival war footage and found sound.

The whole thing feels more like a short film in 3 parts (a la Kurosawa) than a rock vid. We are pleased!
