In further ambitiously odd music video news today, Beach House has released a new one for “Wishes” off of last year’s Bloom. Coming from director Eric Wareheim (of Tim And Eric fame), the clip is of a strange but enthusiastic equine-themed half time show, where actor Ray Wise (Twin Peaks, Reaper) sings Victoria Legrand’s words with immense focus while members of the color guard swap out flags for nunchucks, light sabres and pole weapons.
 
Speaking about the video, Wareheim explains in a press release, “Victoria’s imagery inspired me to create this special halftime show.” I can’t say this is quite the same visual I conjured while listening to the track over the last year, but Eric’s body of work indicates he tends to see things on a different level. Weirdly enough, between the fireworks, slow-moving shots and vibrant colors, it all comes together in a very endearing way. Check it out below.
