Italian Japanese create imaginative new video

Italian Japanese has released a video for the single "Two Islands," which is just as endearing and whimsical as the band's heart clenching rhythms and swelling vocals. Like one of the scenes in the video where lead singer Allen Nicholas sits in the meadow blowing bubbles, this San Deigo band has a delicate indie rock sound that gives off a sense of being in a safe and comfortable environment. Inspired by the film, "The Science of Sleep," the video follows a love story with the use of paper cut-outs. Grinding guitars weave in and out in the background as the video leads to a happy ending for the two characters. Italian Japanese is working on releasing a full-length, but until then, the band will be showcasing at SXSW and touring the southwest. - Karla Hernández
