Bon Iver has debuted yet another beautifully shot music video, this time for his self-titled sophomore effort’s “Towers.” Directed by Nabil Elderkin, the man responsible for the picturesque video for “Holocene,” the clip follows an old man on a trek toward the open ocean.

According to Elderkin, “When Justin sent me a breakdown of what certain parts/lines of the song meant to him I did my best to decode it and curate into something simple, and hopefully the viewer can take from it their own feeling of what the towers represent. It was shot up in Washington state, mostly on Indian-preserved land, and our actor’s name was Mystic. He seemed to be very tuned into the land, and when he said he was also willing to fall into the freezing cold ocean up there (seems a bit sharky too), I knew he was my guy.” Click below to watch the video.
