Amelia’s Magazine | Single and Video Review: I Like Trains – Sea of Regrets

iliketrains sea of regrets
My favourite music videos are those which take you on a narrative journey such as that for the new I Like Trains single, Sea of Regrets. In this 8 minute video Ben Lankester times his story in perfect harmony with the highs and lows of this emotionally extravagant song. Actor Segun Akingbola beautifully embodies the character, a man who is leaving something undetermined behind to head into the great unknown. The result is a silent cinematic piece that stands up to its own scrutiny.

Director Ben Lankester is a founding member of The Progress Film Company. Visit their website to view a film about the London Riots, asking Why Has This Happened?

From today I Like Trains are in the studio with Mercury Prize nominated producer Richard Formby, who worked on the Wild Beasts albums. Read my previous interview with singer Dave Martin here – I look forward to their third album!
