Having wrapped up a their first ever national tour with Keep Shelly In Athens, including sets at SXSW ’12, and a sold-out NYC show with Snow Patrol, Jonquil has premiered a new video for “Run” with Interview Magazine. “There is a very childlike joy expressed in the song, so I love the idea of a very simple narrative based on shapes and colors and free association,” explains director Maximilla Lukacs. The Oxford, UK quartet recently released a breezy Keep Shelly in Athens remix of the single. Led by Hugo Manuel (who also performs as Chad Valley), Jonquil released Point Of Go earlier this year with Dovecote Records, as USA Today declared it their “most accessible record to date.”
