The National Parks have just released their brand new music video for the song, “Helsinki“. In the video, a father wakes his young son at the crack of dawn to go fishing. They begin their day slowly, getting dressed, getting their gear together, setting out into the morning light. But as the music picks up, so does the action of the short film. Father and son are shown jetting out across the lake in their adorable, bright orange-colored little fishing boat. The boy has a huge smile on his face. His dad is taking him fishing! This is a joyful video to accompany a joyful song. The National Parks came together as a band in 2013 in Utah, and their style is fairly standard-indie. The ensemble includes a piano, violin, guitar, and sweet, inoffensive vocals. Since starting out two years ago, the group has managed to cut a few albums and gain good standing with the press. They have a solid social media presence, which means they know how to play the game and market themselves. They also have toured extensively in the United States, building up their live performance skills and solidifying as a creative group. On their website, the group boasts of feeling proud at how far they have evolved in the past two years. That’s great! We definitely support this musical project, and are looking forward to seeing what they produce in the future.
