The liquid, pliant lead single from Caribou’s upcoming album Swim now has a video that’s equally soft-edged. No concrete storyline here — just lots of wintry nature shots blending into one another, and a woman driving, then walking through the snow, with a sort of Into The Wild vibe to the beginning/ending. Like the song’s protagonist, the video’s main character is also in the process of escaping from someone, with just as little success.

Swim is out 4/20 via Merge.

  15. As if I could love Caribou any more? I love love love love love (yes, 5x) this. And I think this video checked into my subconscious for its material. Creepily fulfilling.

  16. This is certainly different than their last album, and is just as intriguing.
