Young Hunting: Sweet Bird
This music video reminds me of my drives through the Santa Barbara mountains. One of my favorite places to go on hikes is a special spot called Inspiration Point. The mountains are an earthy clay red, something I have come to assimilate to my time here in Santa Barbara.
Young Hunting's video for "Sweet Bird" sees a couple driving through an ethereal landscape; the visuals are a perfect pairing to this drawn out and dreamy song.
Described by their label as " gentle, lush dream pop fused with stark, desolate gothic folk," this Los Angeles Quintet are channelling the ers of the 60's and 70's through their faded soundscapes and floaty vocals.
Fun fact: their album ,' Hazel' was recorded in a series of places including, a ranger's station in the Angeles National Forest, LA's Koreatown, Joshua Tree, living rooms, garages & guest houses in Echo Park. As avid travellers and explorers ourselves, we appreciate the expansive efforts and influences that went into recording their album; it tells an interesting tale. 'Hazel' was released in 2013 via Gold Robot Records.
