Shearwater - "You As You Were" Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Earlier this year, the Jonathan Meiburg-helmed Shearwater put out the Album Of The Week Animal Joy, perhaps the band’s most lush and well-crafted release to date. The single “You As You Were” serves as a great sample of Animal Joy’s strengths, and today yields the accompanying Alix Lambert-directed video for that track, another stark visual heavily embedded with animal imagery.
