Fleet Foxes - "Grown Ocean" Video

Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold came back to Twitter some time ago, until just a few minutes ago where he announced a bit of an internet hiatus. “As a parting shot,” though, comes this video for Helplessness Blues’s “Grown Ocean,” set to images captured by his brother (and noted video director) Sean Pecknold. Behold:

  1. Sean Pecknold is so good at making amazing videos.

    And Fleet Foxes are so good at making amazing music.

    I am siked for this album… and no!! I am not going to get the leaked copy! I am waiting.

  2. I’ve been listening to this album all week. The first time I listened to the album and it got to the end this track left no lasting impression. I’m not sure why, maybe I wasn’t paying attention to it because it was at the end. Which is wrong of me to turn off at the end or to get my attention caught by some task and miss the nuances of this song but for some unknown reason, maybe I was paying more attention, I’m not sure, this song just got to me. When Robin sings
    “In that dream I could hardly contain it
    All my life I will wait to attain it
    There, there, there”
    and the flutes come in, when I was listening to it, I got emotional, I began tearing up. I have not had that type of emotional response from any other song recently. I want to thank Fleet Foxes for making great music. I know Robin has posted here before, and I mean this as a sincere gesture of my admiration to your art, Thank You.


    I’m excited to see you guys live.
    Also: I apologize for any grammatical or syntactical errors.

    • I think i had the same reaction with this song the first time I heard it. Really glad they made this video. Top to bottom this album is GREAT. I was nervous about this new one, because I adore the first one so much but this has definitely exceeded my expectations. I am definitely buying this when it comes out…deluxe album/radiohead-eque monstrosity/vinyl w/e – I’m going to get it! incredible!

  3. As a person that loves Music, I wanted to let all the musics lovers out there know about a Battle of the Bands Contest. Almost everyone knows someone in a band – this is their chance to get their big break! Uploading a song and their profile is easy – the hard part is spreading the word and getting people to vote! Vote for a band or enter to win at briggsbattleofthebands.com

  4. These dudes have a serious beard brotherhood going on except for the guitarist as the lone black sheep. He’s keeping it gangsta though with the clean look.

  5. Wonderful video work by Sean.

    And the song, whoa. This is my favorite song they have done so far. Breathtakingly gorgeous. There’s such a quality of innocence and pure spirit in their music that you don’t hear very often. So much love in this song.

  6. Are you kidding me? Holy crap… and I am not a fanboy. I am freaking 32 years old and I don’t think I have even commented on this site more than 2 or 3 times. This is incredible. I just thought it needed it be said. These guys are other worldly.

  7. I’m pretty sure that this video will start off my morning every morning for the next few months. I am in love with it.

  8. Lovely imagery, amazing sound.. adore it!

  9. More subtle. And better.
