Earlier this year, before releasing his surprise mixtape Samantha, Toro Y Moi gave us the mellow, blissy guitar-pop album What For?. And even before that, sometime last year, he hiked to Half Dome Mountain in Yosemite. There, he happened to meet photographer and fan R. Adam Prieto, who was talked into filming the video for the album track “Half Dome,” mostly by taking in the stunning landscape around Yosemite, often in time-lapse. Toro Y Moi does appear in the video, but you have to keep your eyes peeled to spot him. Watch the video below.
What For? is out now on Carpark.
