Shearwater have released an animated lyric video for their track Pale Kings.

The song is taken from latest album Jet Plane And Oxbow, released earlier this year via Sub Pop. The video was created by Matthew Watkins.

Jet Plane And Oxbow is their first release since 2014’s Missing Islands: Demos And Outtakes 2007-2012 and is described as their “loudest record” to date and a “leap forward that fans always believed they would make.”

The Texas-based band have a number of European tour dates lined up for this summer.
