Bon Iver, "Towers"
2012 appears to be Bon Iver’s year. We’re barely through February, and the Eau Claire, Wisconsin band, led by main man Justin Vernon, has already notched a Grammy for Best New Artist and appeared on Saturday Night Live. With this newly-dropped video for “Towers,” off of the outfit’s stellar self-titled LP, the list of accomplishments continues to grow. Directed by Nabil Elderkin (who also shot the “Holocene” video), the clip follows an old man through an appropriately Arcadian setting, as he carries a massive net out to sea. Truthfully, it’s a little slow, but then so is Bon Iver’s music. So chill, man.
