Watch a Video for Easter Island’s “You Don’t Have a Choice”

Here’s a new music video from local post-rockers Easter Island. The essence of the tune—the pensive and melodic “You Don’t Have a Choice,” from the band’s well-received 2012 album Frightened—is captured nicely by the brightly hued, emotionally affecting clip.

Fun game alert: See how many townies you can spot in the video, much of which was filmed at local restaurant The National. (There’s even a Flagpole writer that makes an appearance, ’cause we’re obviously a multitalented bunch.)
