Kurt Vile, ‘Never Run Away’ – New Video

Kurt Vile embarks on a walking (and bus-riding) tour of his native Philadelphia in the video for ‘Never Run Away,’ a tune from his recently released ‘Wakin on a Pretty Daze’ album.

Shots of graffiti-covered landmarks, the elevated train and Vile dressed all in white, walking amid the mist of light precipitation or playing his guitar against a backdrop of gutted buildings, make up the visuals for this video. It shows both the seedy and lively sides of the City of Brotherly Love.

‘Never Run Away’ isn’t quite a love letter to his home city. Instead, it’s a depiction, a slice of urban life, juxtaposing starkness (the white clothes and bus) and colorful decay (the buildings and neighborhoods).
