Published Feb 24, 2012Elfin Saddle's upcoming third LP Devastates apparently deals with "the tensions between nature and technology on multiple levels," and those themes are seemingly present in the Montreal-based experimental folk outfit's self-directed clip for new tune "The Wind Come Carry Me."
The video finds its protagonist gracefully moving back and forth between pastoral greenery and charcoal-coloured industrial landscapes. Along the way she collects some bones, pieces of wood and jewelry. There are tons of cut shots whisking across flower-covered fields, but there's still something stunningly gorgeous about watching a swell of birds swooping towards a pile of garbage mid-clip.
Check out the vid for the rustic military march, which also juxtaposes Jordan McKenzie's back-porch croak with Emi Honda's lilting vocals, down below.
As previously reported, Devastates drops on March 6 through Constellation.
