The Downtown Fiction get back to nature in their "Some Place On Earth" video.
The Downtown Fiction are feeling generous in their new song, "Some Place On Earth" -- and just in time for Christmas, too. Everyone gets a song! "This is the song that we sing/ for every loser and king. For all the friends and the thieves." That just about covers all of us, no? It's enough to make your heart melt. And if that doesn't do the trick, the sweet story behind the video should seal the deal.
Watch The Downtown Fiction's "Some Place On Earth" video after the jump.
It's been a couple years since we've heard any new music from the Virginia power-pop foursome, whose 2011 song "I Just Wanna Run" popped up on basically every MTV show: "Jersey Shore," "The Hard Times of RJ Berger," "The Hills," etc. But "Some Place On Earth" is a harbinger of the band's second album, which comes out in 2014 on Fearless Records.
"We shot the 'Some Place on Earth' video in the hills of Malibu, which turned out to be a fitting setting for the song's epic quality," frontman Cameron Leahy said of the clip, which finds two young creative souls trying to find each other in the wild. "She's out there somewhere," the band sing in sugary harmony. In this case having a compass on hand really seems to help.
"These two characters are wandering through a beautiful, barren landscape, which is how we all feel sometimes, I think," Leahy went on in a press release. "We're all on our own search for truth, and none of us are exempt from the highs or the lows. It's a song about tolerance and love -- the world could always use more of that."
