Video: Bon Iver - "Towers"

Bon Iver had a pretty good 2011 with their highly successful sophomore release called Bon Iver, Bon Iver, taking leader Justin Vernon and company to the next level. Then earlier this month he won two Grammy's. Whether or not you dig Bon Iver, the sophomore album was pretty damn good.

Returning in all their glory for the next video, the Bon Iver crew chose Nabil Elderkin again to direct the single, "Towers." This was a good choice since Elderkin captured "Holocene" so well. Learn a bit about the video from Nabil and watch the video below.

When Justin sent me a breakdown of what certain parts/lines of the song meant to him I did my best to decode it and curate into something simple, and hopefully the viewer can take from it their own feeling of what the towers represent. It was shot up in Washington state, mostly on Indian-preserved land, and our actor's name was Mystic. He seemed to be very tuned into the land, and when he said he was also willing to fall into the freezing cold ocean up there (seems a bit sharky too), I knew he was my guy.
