new music video: shearwater

Shearwater's music has always seemed to bring a flare for the dramatic along with it. The Austin TX band's albums are generally chock full of slow and dynamic songfare; the kind that seem the result of momentous occasions and important, personal revelations (so too do their performances). Their latest album The Golden Archipelago very much follows suit, as does their first video to emerge from that record.

Titled "Hidden Lakes", the video pairs singer Jonathan Meiburg in a show down with the band's mythically named, drummer Thor....though Meiburg's isolated journey to that point in time comprises most of this gorgeously shot video. The desert, the mountains, abandoned homesteads, loneliness, isolation...you'd want what Meiburg wants back as well. - David Pitz
