Spring Offensive – Not Drowning But Waving

It’s always nice to see a band doing things their own way, and Spring Offensive are certainly a band who do just that. The excellent new single ‘Not Drowning But Waving’ has a video that was created and directed by the band themselves.

Spring Offensive guitarist and video creator/ director Matt Cooper states The video takes the song’s narrative beyond the central event, investigating the burden and consequences of guilt; the main character’s reenactment of the drowning by wearing the dead man’s clothes and filling the bathroom with things from the beach, could stem from this or from a desire to experience what it is like for the victim”. You can watch the video for yourself, here:

Not Drowning But Waving is available digitally now and available to pre-order on vinyl from 10th September 2012.
