Last year, Canadian seven-piece Hey Rosetta! packed up their gear and took off for Fogo Island, a beautiful spot on the coast of Newfoundland, to try to record their songs for Second Sight in a fresh environment.

“I’d actually been hearing about Fogo Island for years from my own family,” said band leader Tim Baker. “My great-grandmother and great-aunt were originally from there and my great-uncle used to talk about it with a misty-eyed, almost evangelical zeal. I always imagined a sort of heaven.”

Filmed and edited by Mark Bennett, the band has released a short film of their encounters on the trip, including three unique performances and a small glimpse into their days on the road together. Check out the video above, and take a peek at the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
