Premiere: Shadow of Whales HIP Spotlight

It’s no secret that Austin, Texas is full of musical talent. Since 2014, Austin residents Jeremy Boyum, Chris Fraga, JD Vasquez, and Caleb Flores have been playing together as Shadow of Whales. From their debut single “Dream” to last year’s What We Do EP, Shadow of Whales writes alternative/ indie-pop songs that are as infectious as they are inspiring. We recently teamed up with the band to promote the video for “Runaway” (from What We Do), which shows a female protagonist cutting the anchors from her life that are holding her back so she can pursue her dreams.

Last week, some of the HIP Crew were down in Austin for SXSW, where they met up with Shadow of Whales to film this HIP Spotlight interview. In the interview, the band talks about the message of “Runaway” and all that went in to making the video! Watch Shadow of Whales’ HIP Spotlight and the “Runaway” video below!
