Power-pop pacesetters Fountains Of Wayne – always known for their inventive videos – unveil a brand-new clip for their single “Someone To Love”, starring comedian/actor Demetri Martin and newcomer Faryl Millet. Martin, known for his regular appearances as a guest correspondent on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” as well as his brilliantly offbeat stand-up routines, plays Seth Shapiro, a lonely lawyer looking for love in New York City. Millet portrays Beth Mackenzie, his neighbor who works at a teen magazine. The two singles seem destined to meet…but ultimately connect in a way that no one expects.

The new video was helmed by young, New York-based director Adam Neustadter, who recently garnered attention for the award-winning video for Morningwood’s “Nth Degree” as well as his hilarious Kidz Bop version of Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone”.

“Someone To Love” is the first single from the Fountains’ critically-lauded new album Traffic And Weather, which Rolling Stone gave Four Stars and HITS called “one of the records that raises the bar for everyone else.”

With the new video in the can, Fountains Of Wayne will hit the road in support of “Traffic And Weather”. The group, which recently played Coachella and will make stops at the Bonnaroo and Virgin festivals, as well as headlining U.S. clubs in June and a string of dates opening for Squeeze. A run of UK shows is scheduled in May, as well as a headlining slot at Japan’s legendary Fuji Rock Festival in July.
