The build-up to Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2 is continuing with the release of an animated video for Into The Surf.

Inspired by Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis’ Greek background, the track follows on swiftly from the official promo for The Runner with part two of the band’s 2019 album dilogy out on the 18th of this month.

“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,” says the video’s director Steve Warne.

“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.”
