Video: Justin Vernon's Volcano Choir - "Byegone"

volcano choir repave

Justin Vernon of Bon Iver's other other band (the one where he joins up with the post-rock band Collections of Colonies of Bees) is Volcano Choir, and we've previously profiled some stuff from their upcoming record Repave. Here's a new video from the first single the guys released, "Byegone," directed by Michinori Sago and starring the installation of long fluorescent lights in a tree. It's minimalist but lovely - the lights' intensity changes in tune with the song - and perfectly fits the track's effortless way of dredging up nostalgia you didn't know you had or might not even have yet. Check it out - and remember Repave's out September 3.
