Poised to release their third full-length A New Nature next month on Sept. 8, Esben and the Witch have shared a brand new music video featuring their single "Dig Your Fingers In." Directed by Sim Warren, the single shot visual takes a first-person perspective following in the footsteps of a cloaked figure, essentially making a moving image of the atmospheric photo serving as the A New Nature's cover art.

"We wanted to create a single shot short film that shows a journey, a figure toiling through a beautiful but lonely landscape," says the band in a press release. "It was important to us to make something that enhanced the song and drew upon the same themes that inspired the music and the lyrics. We were keen to work with our friends Sim and Mia from the Contrast Collective because of the fine films they have made in the past and Sim's keen eye for the natural world. We wanted to make the video in the same place that we shot the album cover and knew that they'd be in their element in the primeval forest. I'm reliably informed by Sim that they used a FS700 camera and that the film was shot in 4k using an odyssey recorder for those interested in the technical side of things."
