Grizzly Bear released a striking new video today for “Neighbors,” a track off of their forthcoming album Painted Ruins. Their follow up to 2012’s Shields arrives on August 18th.This is the fourth single released from the new album, following “Three Rings,” “Mourning Song” and “Four Cypresses.”
The video was directed by Jonny Look and features a feral man and woman finding each other in the forest. They settle down in a home, but still feel the need to camouflage themselves. They have a child and take a family portrait, blending into the backgrounds. The striking costume and set design really make this a visual feast. Not sure what this says about domesticity or our need to commune with nature, but it has some amazing visuals.
Grizzly Bear announced their first tour in four years. Check out the tour dates here. Grizzly Bear ends their tour here in Los Angeles at the Palladium on December 13th. Check out the dates and buy tickets here.
