"Row of Houses," the latest single from Canadian singer-songwriter Dan Mangan, was inspired by one of his favorite movies. "The song is from the perspective of Gordie Lachance from the film Stand By Me," says Mangan. "I dug that movie so much as a kid, and recently realized that it's still just as good as I thought it was. Blatant Films in Vancouver put together this crazy visual scheme between green screen live action and 3D animation. The newspapers in the vid are symbolic of the blinders we live in – purposefully so focused on what's in front of us that we can't see a thing – even what's right in our faces. The wind is progress, pulling and tugging at us, affecting the air we breathe, but always just beneath the surface of our attention."
