James Blake ft. Bon Iver - "I Need A Forest Fire"
Directors: Matt Clark & Chris Davenport
The otherworldly, mesmerizing video for James Blake and Bon Iver’s “I Need a Forest Fire” begins with mysterious array of papier-mâché-esque shapes. Slowly, the fragments take form, and a forehead—then a jawline, eyes, and a full face—appear. Much of the video continues on this course, with shadowed, abstract objects gradually becoming familiar: feathers, an eagle, a rose, the artists' faces.
Directed by UVA, the video is just as hypnotizing and strangely beautiful as the song itself. Moody, melancholy, and undeniably gorgeous—exactly what you’d expect from this goosebump-inducing, sadboy singer duo.
