Volcano Choir - "Bygone" video

Volcano Choir: The rare Justin Vernon Bon Iver side project that makes it to a second album! Volcano Choir is Vernon’s project with the members of the Wisconsin post-rock band Collections Of Colonies Of Bees. “Byegone,” the first single from their sophomore LP Repave, is already more concrete and accessible than anything on their 2009 debut Unmap; it could almost be a Bon Iver song. The song’s new music video, from director Michinori Saigo, is just as gorgeously minimal and pastoral as the song. It shows a tree full of light-tubes that turn on and off in time with the song’s tidal rhythms. Check it out below.

  1. This song is fantastic.

  2. It could almost be a *Coldplay* song. (sorry yall that’s not an insult).

  3. Even with all of the super high profile releases still to come, this album is one of the ones I’m most looking forward to. I mean, Justin Vernon? Good. Post-Rock? Good. This song? Good.
    All signs point to a pretty spectacular album.

  4. I think my post-rock phase when I was 19 is going to be coming back in September.
