Travel Tunes: Grown Ocean

- Joy Pecknold, Passport blog editor

What does wanderlust sound like? Something like this.

“Grown Ocean”, the latest track to emerge from Fleet Foxes‘ forthcoming sophomore album, Helplessness Blues, is inspiring on aural merits alone. But pair that tune with vintage-tinged visuals of the Seattle band recording, travelling and having a laugh, shot documentary-style with the warmth of an old family reel, and there’s good chance you’ll hop in your van for a road trip before the video wraps.

A good 30 of its YouTube views can be credited to we Kiwi editors. Watch, replay and repeat.
