High Highs – “A Real Hero” (College & Electric Youth Cover) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Miles Bowe / October 2, 2013

Though it might be blasphemy for some to picture College’s “A Real Hero” soundtracking ANYTHING other than Ryan Gosling driving through the night, but the video to High Highs recent majestic cover of the track puts it in a different and enjoyable new context. In a brightly lit forest, a group of people swim, laugh, smoke, and most impressively, dive off tall rocks into the water. All of this is captured in exquisitely shot slow motion, which lets each person hang in the air of their dive until they’re almost floating. Watch below.

High Highs’ Open Season is out now via Fine Time.
