Skydiggers "Set You Free This Time" (Byrds cover) (video)
Published May 12, 2016As previously reported, Skydiggers are just about to release their Gene Clark-tributing Here Without You. Before the record can send you, well, "Eight Miles High," the Toronto roots troupe are celebrating bipedal motion in a music video for their take on "Set You Free This Time."
Skydiggers' interpretation of the Byrds number is intimate and tender, with light strums supporting Andy Maize's half-hushed vocals. Visually, we're privy to some filter-distorted, birds-eye view shots of an in-motion bicycle before the camera angle observes various figures fleeing the scene.
Gentle and ruminative, the video can be found below.
While Here Without You goes on sale tomorrow (May 13) through Latent Records, Exclaim! is currently streaming the album in full over here.
