Video of the Moment #1644: Natives

I remember watching a tv show years ago on American public television in which travel writer Rick Steves described Blackpool as Britain’s Coney Island. I had a hard time imagining a Coney Island in blighty, thinking that if it really existed, I’d be walking round the place in a confused daze. For their new promo for ‘The Horizon’, the title track of their upcoming EP, Natives took the idea of a cowboy visiting the North West seaside time for the first time and married it with another concept. Here’s how the band themselves describe their efforts:

With The Horizon we wanted to do something different to our previous videos. We had the initial idea of a cowboy experiencing a vibrant British town like Blackpool for the first time which we really liked the juxtaposition of. Together with Duncan Howsley we turned this into the final concept, a video about both the wonders and fears of exploring something new – about being young and sneaking out of your house and into the big city without your parents permission!

Watch the video below. ‘The Horizon’ EP from Natives will be out on the 13th of October.
