The Pines' "Cry, Cry Crow" video has a few casualties

A mysterious black feather and other items with symbolic possibilities aplenty figure in prominently into the new, moody "Cry, Cry Crow" video from Midwest folk act the Pines. Our star is a ginger-haired girl -- who should totally meet the L.L. Bean-clad loner boy in Bon Iver's "Holocene" video -- setting out on a mission to figure out where this feather belongs. The song comes from Dark So Gold, which is out in mid-February via Red House Records. Spoiler alert: Some characters in the story will not survive to the final frame.

Let's just say that we're not 100 percent sure Cillian Murphy, circa Batman Begins, doesn't make an appearance here. This clip was written & directed by Andre Durand, and produced by Daniel Cummings (both of whom worked on Bon Iver's "Calgary" video) for Picture Machine Productions.

More from the Pines from last week's live set in the Current's studio.

Catch the Pines' CD release show on February 17 at the Cedar Cultural Center.
