Bon Iver's "Towers" video has towers in it


The video for Bon Iver's "Towers" is strikingly similar to the "Holocene" clip. There's nature, there's cinematography, and there's white people dressed in rugged clothing out of an Orvis catalog. For the already converted, this is another sweeping example of the sweeping power of the sweeping Grammy-winning album Bon Iver. For anyone who wasn't really feeling it before, this collection of images won't change your mind and you should go watch Marijuana Deathsquads' "Crazy Master."

Loosely, we've got some sort of tale reminiscent of Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea -- except let's call this one The Old Man Who Designs and Builds Wooden Towers in the Sea. He might be tired of building them now, but you'll have to watch to find out for sure.  

Just like "Holocene," this is directed by Nabil.
