Single and Video Review: I Like Trains – Sea of Regrets

A wonderful narrative video by Ben Lankester accompanies the new I Like Trains single Sea of Regrets. From today they are back in the studio to record their third album with producer Richard Formby.

Written by Amelia Gregory

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.
