Yesway – “Let Go” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Yesway’s self-titled debut from earlier this year was a slept-on gem, a hushed collection of darkly strummed folk songs that evoke a feeling of woodsiness and wonder. In the video for “Let Go,” co-directors Max Basch and Lucas Mcgowen interpret their darkness literally, manipulating shadows to cast the duo as if they were flitting in and out of light. The second half of the video plays as an inversion, placing them against decomposing sunbursts and seeing them pulled at and apart. The visuals sparkle like the remnants of a night sky, eerie but beautiful. Watch below.
Yesway is out now.
