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
