The Franklin Electric have dropped a new video for “I’ve Been Here Before” off of their forthcoming EP Made It Up In Your Head, which drops on August 2nd.
The intimate track revolves around a powerful acoustic guitar line as frontman Jon Matte’s raspy vocals take the lead. With expansive, wistful instrumentals, the video accompanies the track perfectly as Matte makes his way across beautiful California landscapes.
“It’s a song about relating to everyday people falling apart, about hopelessness and protecting your defences, and always wanting more,” frontman Jon Matte explains to Indie88. “The video simply shows off natures power and beauty in a way that compliments the acoustic guitar, lyrics, and the beats. These elements are constantly happening before our very own eyes, however we seem too busy to notice. Shot over a 2 day period in California, I got to walk through so many different heavenly places from sunrise to sunset.”
