First of all, we would like to congratulate Pink Mountaintops on Get Back being featured on this year’s Polaris Music Prize long list. Secondly, we are VERY excited to present a kick-ass video for “Second Summer Of Love”, off their most recent album Get Back. The new video directed by Brook Linder debuted at Entertainment Weekly today and features a beautiful montage of youthful recklessness including skateboards on fire, bashing mailboxes, and more. Watch the video above or here on YouTube / Vevo.
On the video, director Linder said,
“We started with this insane image: looking at a flaming kick flip from an impossible angle, and worked backwards from there. Much of the focus was just creating a collage of textures grabbed from rolling around with this skate crew in the Midwest. The song is totally Stephen’s anthem for a very particular time and place – we took those images and twisted them out into a montage of youthful energy, the good and the bad.”
