We’re two weeks off the release of Infinite Arms, but we’ve already heard “Laredo,” “Factory,” and “Compliments.” Now there’s an official video for yet another track from the new album. “NW Apt” is made of lots of time-lapsed photography of (likely Pacific Northwest) forests, blue, cloud-dotted skies, and birdhouses. The song sounds pretty cheery, but includes this ominous line: “Somebody trapped in an underground basement / Just a few blocks down the road.” Difficult to tell if singer Ben Bridwell ever returns to that “somebody” later in the song. The video was directed by Christopher Wilson. He shot their album cover for Infinite Arms, as well as many live photos of the band.

Infinite Arms is out 5/18 via Brown Records/Fat Possum/Columbia.

  2. Best song from the album yet.

  3. Dublin. or greengrass?

  4. As a Pac NW resident, I can assure everyone that this video accurately depicts our beautiful region. :P
