New music video for 'Towers' by Bon Iver

I guess I’m a little behind on this, but Bon Iver released a new music video for their song Towers, one of my favorites from their new album. The video seems to be about an old, salty sailor looking man who dreams of towers… or something like that. The video is pretty mysterious, but watching it I can’t help but think of the phrase, “They build you up just to tear you down.” The video was shot by NABIL, aka Nabil Elderkin, a director/photographer who’s now based in Los Angeles. He’s done a beautiful job of shooting this video. Some of the angles he’s shot, especially the parts in the water, are exquisite. I thought it was also a good use of CGI as it’s not heavy-handed, complimenting the video quite nicely.
