Last year, orchestral pop mastermind Jherek Bischoff tapped David Byrne to sing "Eyes," the sweeping second track off his Composed LP. Now the two have reunited for the dynamic tune's official music video. The clip's synopsis on YouTube is short but to the point: "A close-up view of eyes and stringed instruments." Of course, anything involving David Byrne is rarely so simple. The short — created in collaboration with filmmaker Jordan Kinley and New York-based production studio Georgia — features some arthouse flourishes, with crisp camerawork, quick cuts, and pupil-warping special effects. Watch it above.
