Sondre Lerche – “When The River” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Sondre Lerche’s new video for “When The River” is a pretty, soft-focus splicing of Super 8 film (from drummer David Heilman’s childhood) and Lerche performance footage shot by his Lerche’s, Mona. It’s a clip that underscores the heartsickness of nostalgia and the mellow sadness of Lerche’s music, all presented with vivid flecks of color and life. Though the Super 8 thing is pretty overdone at this point, it’s a nice reminder of that style’s effectiveness when thoughtfully employed. Watch the clip below.

Sondre Lerche is out now on his label, Mona Records.
