After an attention-grabbing 2016, Bendigo three-piece Fountaineer have returned with a beautiful new clip for their anthemic track ‘The Cricketers’, shot around their hometown and directed by Melbourne’s Clare Nica.

Steeped in energetic melancholy, ‘The Cricketers’ is a swelling, emotive piece that serves to further the band’s claim as the perfect intersection between the nostalgic charm of a small town outfit, and the sort of sound that can fill an arena.

Taken from their upcoming debut LP, the track has recently joined the rotation on triple j​, and the former Unearthed winners are celebrating with some special free Sydney and Melbourne shows on July 14 & 15 – dates below.

‘The Cricketers’ is out now through 1825 Records, and you can watch the treat of a clip below.

Fountaineer live dates

July 14 – The Botany View Hotel, Sydney, NSW (free entry)

July 15 – The Post Office Hotel, Melbourne, VIC (free entry)
