Described as a “hallucinogenic love story” by its director, the new video for ‘Close’, culled from Sun Airway’s eagerly anticipated sophomore album “Soft Fall” features a bemused looking fellow wandering around a rugged Australian coastline after what seems like failing to rescue his sweetheart from drowning. To make matters worse, inanimate objects such as rocks and burning twigs keep deciding to hover in the air in front of him whenever he’s trying to grab some kip. As if he doesn’t have enough on his plate. The song itself flows along strongly with a persistent drumbeat and swelling orchestration which could almost be described as M83 covering Coldplay. If that floats your boat, check out the video and marvel at the pretty scenery while you’re at it.
