Lost in the Trees‘ new album, Past Life, will be out on February 18, 2014, but the band has teased glimpses of the music in preparation of the big day. Today we see the most exciting offering yet, the debut of the title track and the accompanying music video, directed by Dan Huiting and Andre Durand. The video follows a bright eyed protaganist through a chilling winter landscape of light, fog and cornfields. It is a perfect visual for the pulsing and urgent song, certainly the most gripping track Lost in the Trees has ever released.
