Northern Irish and Scottish alternative rock band Snow Patrol have premiered a music video for their brand new single "Crack the Shutters". The video presents the band members performing the song in the middle of people running fast, seemingly trying to make an escape from something.
"Crack the Shutters" is the second single which is written by frontman Gary Lightbody. The song comes from the band's fifth major studio effort "A Hundred Million Suns" which has been available for U.S. purchase since October 28.
"We make records with everything at our disposal, from things fresh out of the box to things that smell of mothballs," Lightbody said. Meanwhile, commenting on his songwriting credit on the album, he noted that his work was "very simplistic". He explained, "What we do is melody and honesty, that is the core. I think the songs reach out as far as they do because people identify with it."
