When we were with the Bon Iver team in Grammyland a couple of weeks ago, they spoke excitedly of a new video on the horizon, one they couldn’t wait to share. It’s here. The below clip for “Towers,” a steel-embossed shuffle from the Wisconsin outfit’s latest, is a lush, cyclical cousin to the “Holocene” clip that would flash across Staples Center screens later that weekend. Director Nabil Elderkin (who also shot Frank Ocean for the new issue of SPIN) returns here, opting to swap out the boy hero and Icelandic landscapes from the latter visual for an elderly gentleman (he goes by the name Mystic) situated in the forest of the Pacific Northwest. The results are every bit as breathtaking.
