We are extremely excited to share Hopewell’s video for “Island” with you. The band’s good friend Art Boonparn (who has also done videos for The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Cold Cave & The Silent League) managed to pretty accurately represent the spirit of the song by shooting hand held Super 8 footage in and around Brooklyn, NY and mixed them together with archival war footage and found sound, a la Kurosawa. The video has more of a short film feel than your standard music video.
