Surroundings show the importance of family in storybased video

Surroundings came first to my attention when they released a strong video for the track "Elizabeth" which talked about love and if it is able to recover it once it is lost.

Now the band has spread a new single entitled "Jane". This time around the video is completly storybased. You cannot spot the band playing the track but instead you'll be confronted with pure emotions packed in intensive pictures, filmed with modern style yet these remain authentic.

Speaking about the meaning the band points out on Facebook: "(...) The song is about the importance of family and what it means to have a strong role-model. The video was directed by our guitarist Drew Kendell, and reflects his love of true storytelling. Jane was produced and mixed by our bassist Matthew Templeman.(...)"

As for me this is one of the most intense videos I've seen in a long time now. The strong message and story behind it is outworked very well in the pictures. The song fits perfectly to the visuals and make's them even more special with it's various moods and changes. Videos like this prove that moving pictures can have a superb power to express what's on your mind.

If you'd like to have a copy of the song you can purchase the single at Bandcamp and iTunes.

The band has social sites up and running if you'd like to get in touch with them. Just make sure to see their Facebook page or follow them via Instagram.
