Back in 2008, SPIN rhetorically asked if Michelle Williams (Dawson’s Creek, Brokeback Mountain) was “the coolest indie actress around.” Four years later, we have a definitive answer in the form of Wild Nothing’s new music video for “Paradise,” a dreamy drifter from the Virginia act’s Nocturne LP. In the Matt Amato-directed clip, which premiered on Pitchfork, Williams hops a plane to Niagara Falls, and we take the trip with her, staring out the window, hearing her read from Iris Murdoch’s 1975 novel A Word Child, and eventually winding up face-to-poncho-wearing-face amidst the glory of the massive falls. We all know Wild Nothing’s Jack Tatum likes a good story, and it’s hard to deny this beatific mood piece with its totes adorbs star.
