Fresh off an entrancing set at Bonnaroo, flipturn on 1st July releases the official music video for “Whales.”
The latest single from their upcoming debut album Shadowglow, “Whales” holds a magnifying glass over the effects of seemingly insurmountable pressure. After amassing over 50 million streams on Spotify alone from previous EPs and singles, the band’s debut album will be released in its entirety on August 19.

Directed and edited by longtime collaborator Amanda Laferriere, the video for “Whales” incorporates the motif of dark versus light which appears across much of Shadowglow.
Shot in black and white, the band performs in an isolated room – perhaps the most intimately one can experience a flipturn performance without the roar of fanfare – like at their recent performances at Bonnaroo, Shaky Knees, Hangout, SunFest, and countless headline shows. Clean and understated, this video keeps things direct, while conveying the weight of the song’s subject matter.
The band will be putting on their own curated festival, Playground Music Festival, in Gainesville, FL – one of the cities that was deeply important to their formative years as a band.
