Fruit Bats shared a video for the song “Ocean” from their 2019 album Gold Past Life, out now via Merge. Frontman Eric D. Johnson enlisted the help of director Danielle Rubi for the visual.

Rubi spoke about the inspiration for the video in a statement:

When I first heard Eric’s song “Ocean,” I immediately had a series of moving photographs play out in my mind. The melancholic tone resonated with me a lot artistically, so I decided to create an authentic portrait of how it may feel to be a bit lost in this world. I think our culture could use more somber, honest, and hopeful pieces out there. To help us feel found, and to simply say, We are going to be ok.

Gold Past Life arrived on June 21. The LP has spun three singles including “Ocean,” “The Bottom Of It” and the title track. The record follows Fruit Bats’ 2016 album Absolute Loser.
