Fanfarlo - Fire Escape

It’s been some time since we’ve featured Fanfarlo, but their new video for their song Fire Escape really demands your attention. Filmed mainly in black and white it weaves a narrative around the concept of death, taking emphasis from the lyrics in the song. “When you’re still midway, it’s not too late to just turn back.” You’re never quite sure how it’s all going to end. Furthermore once you’ve watched the film there’s an alternate ending of the video here which has a somewhat darker finale.

Fire Escape is taken from the bands album Reservoir. If you’re wanting more Fanfarlo, in exchange for your email address, the band are currently giving away an exclusive live EP with songs recorded on their first US tour at college radio stations across the country. It includes The Walls Are Coming Down, I’m A Pilot and Finish Line and you can click here to grab them.
