The Moth & The Flame have a new album on the way. It’s their first as a part of Elektra Records, benefitting from production by the likes of Peter Katis (The National, Interpol) and Tony Hoffer (M83, Beck).
The Utah-born, L.A.-based band released their & EP in 2013, and have been touring heavily ever since. This is the first look at their as-yet-untitled next release. The song is “Young & Unafraid,” and it comes complete with a set of ecstatic visuals.
The video stars Neal Unger, a skater who discovered the sport late in life. We follow Neal while he practices, getting back up after every fall and holding his own at the skate park. The band said the concept materialized after the video’s director, Rebecca Thomas, found Neal online:
“We all grew up on skateboarding and decided a cool skate video would be something we would want to watch. When Rebecca ran across a YouYube video of Neal Unger, a much older skateboarder, we all in fell in love with the idea of him being front and center. Neal took up skating later on in life, and to us he is a true example of someone who is Young & Unafraid.”
