Watch The Lumineers Moving New Video for
  • THURSDAY, JULY 07, 2016

  • Posted by: Allison Baritz



The Lumineers have dropped the emotional new video for their song Cleopatra. Directed by Isaac Ravishankara, the video is the first installment in a series chronicling the story of "Cleopatra"- and the title of their latest album- over the course of a series.

Presented in reverse-chronological order, this first video introduces us to Cleo, a 55-year-old divorced cab driver. The video gives viewers a moving glimpse into her life as she picks up passengers, seeing a fleeting reflection of herself in each of them.

I watched this video at least five times in a row. Each time I watched it I got something else out of it. I felt happiness and excitement, but I also felt pain and unease. Each passenger has their own story and more often than not, those self-defining stories will remain unknown, resulting in an aching sense of disconnection.

Both The Lumineers and Ravishankara are artistic geniuses, so watching this first video will only make you more eager to see what the rest of the series has in store.

Watch the profoundly moving new video for "Cleopatra" exclusively through Vevo
