Video: Fakuta - "Aeropuerto"

December approaches and, in our landscape of music junkies and media publishers, it means it’s time to sit down to contemplate best of the year lists. Among the many names that put out debut albums this year, Chilean indie sweetheart Fakuta seems like a sure bet to attain ranking omnipresence across the Americas and overseas. The closing piece and second single off Al Vuelo has been given the audiovisual treatment in an exquisitely framed and remarkably nuanced roadtrip by directors Pablo Muñoz and Rosario González (who were as whimsical in the clip for "Armar y Desarmar"). In this video, Fakuta & The Laura Palmers, in full coalition with the directors, take the concept of “ascending without fear” to heart by merging aerial imagery with seemingly ephemeral vignettes from the road. Even more absorbing than the beautiful polar scenery is the composition of the gangster-looking ensemble, particularly in the elaborate narrative use of that gorgeous wardrobe.
