Published May 02, 2013Philly longhair Kurt Vile has shared the latest clip from his breezy Wakin on a Pretty Daze LP, giving us a tour of his hometown in the video for "Never Run Away."
The video was directed by the duo HARRYS, who spoke to NPR about their process. "Kurt's music, to us, has carried on the lineage established by musicians like Neil Young, Harry Nilsson or Tom Petty," they said. "We wanted to make a video inspired by some of our favourite iconic album art by these sorts of artists. Neil Young, for example, has some classic videos and his album covers, like On the Beach, served as a jumping off point for us. We wanted Kurt's personality and sense of humour to come through in the video and shot it on 35mm to give it a natural and classic feel."
