Steve Gunn has been quietly climbing out of his role as a backing guitarist for Kurt Vile and into a marquee role of his own. Today, that role has been firmly cemented with the announcement that he’s leaving Paradise Of Bachelors, the independent label with a keen eye for all things folk, and signing with indie giant Matador Records. For now, he’s still touring in support of his excellent 2014 release Way Out Weather, and today shared the video for that album’s “Wildwood.” In the clip, directed by Dan Murphy, Gunn wanders through the toll bridges, convenience stores, and wilderness of Wildwood, New Jersey. Watch it below, and to learn more about Gunn’s backstory read our Q&A with him.
Way Out Weather is out now via Paradise of Bachelors.
