Volcano Choir – “Byegone” | Music Video


Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver, is set to release a second album, Repave, with his collaborative side-project Volcano Choir on September 3rd. Following the recent release of lead single “Byegone,” the collective have just premiered the visuals for the captivating track.

The video focuses around a set of fluorescent lights that have been strung around a darkened tree. As the track slowly builds to its enigmatic and emotionally charged chorus, the lights respond in kind, pulsating and shining onto their surroundings, creating a visual aesthetic that mirrors the slow moving beauty of the track itself. The video is directed by Michinori Saigo and follows in the same vein as United Visual Artists’ work for Battles‘ “Tonto.” Take a look below.
