"... the album has an ebb and flow, much like the ocean near which it was recorded in North Carolina."

Balance, directed by Jay Buim, is a beautiful music video about two hitchhikers trying to get to the beach. The music comes from the latest album by NC/MD band Future Islands: On The Water.

Buim also directed the video for Tin Man, a single from the band's previous album.

Another video from On The Water: Before the Bridge.

Future Islands is comprised in part of members from the Wham City collective (most famously known for Dan Deacon).

And if the music isn't your thing, you can mute it and play the Ramones' "Rockaway Beach" twice instead.

Too bad you didn't post this before Heminator's AskMeFi of two days ago in which he was looking for the name of this band. You could have saved him a question. There should be a word for serendipity that didn't quite happen - like sorryndipity.

Yeah, me too. I can't wait for them to come back to Baltimore so I can see them.
