Watch Junip’s Balmy ‘Walking Lightly’ Video

junip, José González, walking lightly

José González’s krautrock-channeling band Junip explored a couple’s long, loveless marriage in the music videos for “Line of Fire” and “Your Life, Your Call,” but the Swedish crew break from that depressing narrative with their latest clip. To promote recent single “Walking Lightly,” a lush romancer off Junip’s self-titled second album, director Fredrik Egerstrand drops the group in a forest-like setting. Shrouded in smoke and blanketed in deep, dusky colors, González and crew deliver an intimate rendition of the track, which will soon be remixed. The Walking Lightly EP arrives on September 17 via Mute, bearing new cuts of the title track (by Maps and electronic producer John Roberts) and “Your Life, Your Call” (by Black Moth Super Rainbow mastermind Tobacco and Berlin trio To Rococo Rot). Watch the “Walking Lightly” video above and scroll down for EP details, followed by tour dates.
