Akron/Family Release New Video, Bring Dreamtime Tour To Europe

Late last week, our friends in the UK at The Quietus (who loved Akron/Family’s Shinju TNT) premiered the video “Light Emerges,” the third single from the record. The video features what looks to be the most fun game of flashlight tag we’ve ever seen, but see for yourself above.
