Andre Durand and Dan Huiting’s music video for “Calgary,” the first single from Bon Iver’s excellent second album, depicts a mysterious ritual enacted by beautiful models in some remote enchanted forest. The art direction and photography are stunning, well above average for a music video, and the narrative is both wonderfully abstract and packed with mythic resonance. Even better, the visuals are perfectly matched to the tone of Bon Iver’s song, which is dark, romantic and enticingly enigmatic.
