WATCH // Watch The Video For Pink Mountaintops “Second Summer Of Love” Directed By Brook Linder

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.”

If you haven’t already, pick up Get Back via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

Themes of loneliness, love and despair surface on the new record, giving listeners a special lens to life on the road. II is out February 5, 2013.

A few weeks ago, we shared the first cut from II – the fantastic “Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark).” Go ahead a give that track another listen above. In addition to streaming, you can now purchase the once tour-exclusive “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)” b/w “Waves of Confidence” 7″ via iTunes.
