It’s been over a year since Seattle folk outfit Fleet Foxes released their sprawling and bewitching third album Crack-Up, but the band is still finding new ways to interpret and display some of their most mysterious work. The latest offering comes in a new short film for album opener “I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar.”

The surrealist video matches the mystique of the music, following actor Jean Charles as he chases down (and is possibly chased by) an ominous hovering cube. The video ranges from an empty desk in an empty room, desert roads, mountains, and murky purple waters. It’s a haunting portrayal of one of the band’s most ambitious musical works.

Watch the video below and revisit the band’s KEXP in-studio from 2017.

Joanna Newsom a...
