This past weekend Future Islands played sold out shows in Raleigh, Baltimore, and New York City. Also this past weekend, across the Atlantic and over in the Czech Republic, the finishing touches were placed on a video for their new single dubbed "The Ink Well".
The video was directed by Theo Anthony, a film student originally from Annapolis but currently studying in Prague. Theo describes this short as a "reaction towards being in a new place where you really don't know what's happening." Anthony was consumed mostly by an unfamiliar environment found within the confines of the encroaching baroque architecture, until he found a massive field that overlooked the city of Prague. These feelings seem to explode in this short, an apt accompaniment to "The Ink Well".
