Premiere: Escape to The Ocean in Findlay Brown’s “Mountains Fall To The Sea”

Singer-songwriter Findlay Brown first unleashed his artistic determination when he sold his grandfather’s Beatles autographs to purchase himself a guitar. Soon after, the Yorkshire-born, Brooklyn based artist began crafting gentle and stunning folk gems, released via his critically acclaimed debut album Separated By The Sea. On the verge of releasing his third album, Slow Light (September 4th), Brown has stayed true to his raw acoustic sensibilities, also continuing to draw inspiration from nature, spirituality, psychedelics, and poetry by the likes of Rumi and Kahlil Gibran.

Premiering today on BlackBook is the music video for Brown’s track “Mountains Fall To The Sea.” About the clip, Brown tells us, “This song is the oldest song on the record. It’s just guitar and vocals. I see it as a sister song to “Separated By the Sea” off my first album. The lyrics mean a lot to me. I love the simplicity of [the poet] Rumi’s work and wanted to capture that feeling.”

The video’s award winning director, Liam St. Pierre, adds, “A troubled boy looking for an escape route from an unhappy life. The film was shot in East London and the East coast of England, and follows two friends’ journey from a mountainous tower block to the openness of the sea, offering a brief but reflective release from the sometimes difficult experiences of life in the city. The film was shot over two days and cast local talent in the narrative piece.”
