Video premiere: "The Fool" by The Eastern Sea

The Eastern Sea
26 July 2016

Out of Austin, Texas, The Eastern Sea is Matthew Hines (vocals/guitar), Kevin Thomas (trumpet), Tomas Garcia-Olano (bass), Andy Beaudoin (drums), and Kurt Lammers (keyboards). The band has released three albums: a self-titled debut in 2009, Plague in 2012, and their latest, The Witness, which came out last November. (All are available on Bandcamp).

Today’s video premiere is a fun, quirky, slightly creepy adventure about two crazy kids who get mixed up in love…and other stuff. We have no idea whether or not the plot has anything to do with the song — delicate, stately, emotionally resonant — but it’s an inspired pairing nonetheless. Do yourself a favor and watch it.
