Firstly, Francisco The Man’s “I’ll Feel Better” is a glorious pop song, a colourful and buoyant concoction, where glowing vocals meet sumptuous instrumentation, and those FTM-signature hooks, to create a gleaming moment of blissful escapism. We point this out right now because the track’s brand new video – which we’re very pleased to premiere below today – is such an inspired companion piece that you might well find all of your attention pulled its way.
Taken from the band’s brand new record, Bodies In The Sun, which follows on from their tremendous ‘Loose Ends’ debut and finds the LA quartet flourishing in said record’s wake, the album’s lead track is joined today by a brilliant new video, which merges playful (somewhat NSFW) story-telling with 8-bit animation to create something wildly memorable.
Wonderfully unique, there’s little context we can add ourselves, so simply sit back and enjoy the ride and be sure to keep an eye out for the brand new record when it arrives later this summer. Check out “I’ll Feel Better” here:
