Folly & the Hunter

"Awake" (video)

BY Sarah MurphyPublished Sep 16, 2015

Montreal folk-pop ensemble Folly & the Hunter returned with a new LP called Awake earlier this year, and now they've unveiled a new video for the album's title track.
The clip sees a bedazzled, feathered woman encouraging people to conquer their fears. She helps an elderly man learn to laugh again, and literally turns a child's frown upside down.
"The concept of this music video explores how we can let our strongest emotion, fear, control our lives," explained video director Brandon Calader via a press release. "I wanted to explore this theme without being too bleak or depressing about it. Even if we all experience fear in our lives, how we overcome it is up to us. And when we do beat it, the reward is one unmatched."
Awake is available now through Outside Music, and you can see the band's upcoming Canadian tour dates listed below. Scroll past the live shows to watch the new video for "Awake."
