Bon Iver has captured the heart of their seminal fourth single, "Beth/Rest," in the track's new music video, which premiered today via The Huffington Post. Directed by Dan Huiting and Justin Vernon himself, the video sees long-time member Mike Noyce discovering love in a dreamy, pseudo-reality. "It's kind of about two people who are truly meant for each other and what happens to their essence," Vernon explains. "How they connect is some other thing that we don't know how to really talk about."
Vernon's statement is certainly backed up by this video's alluring, yet bizarre visuals. Between the glowing, golden light, floating, fairy-like movement, and woodsy-meets-mystical setting [actually the band's April Base studio], the video presents a distinct look at a love that we can register, but not fully understand.
The video comes in conjunction with the single's 12" release on digital and vinyl, featuring a studio-version of "Beth/Rest" on the A-side and a full-band, live recording from an August 2011 Rare Book Room session on the B-Side. Watch the video and grab the single today.
