SWITCHFOOT announces the premiere of their new video for single “Float” today on VEVO. The video was shot March 28, 2016 in Manila and features the band performing in the streets with a local crowd growing larger and larger as the song progresses.
“We have an amazing connection with the Philippines, especially since I’m Filipino” says guitarist and keyboardist Jerome Fontamillas, “so when we decided to film the video for “Float” right outside Manila, it was truly a special moment for me. Not only did we film it a few miles from where I was born, but we were able to immerse ourselves into the Filipino culture and way of life. We learned that no matter what their living conditions are, Filipinos know how to embrace life, make the most of their circumstances, and just have a good time!”
CNN Philippines covered the shoot, which included the band having their lunch break with several kids of Young Focus Philippines, a non-government organization that works with underprivileged people. PRESS HERE to watch. For more info, visit http://www.youngfocus.org.
