Gainesville’s Hundred Waters have released a striking and sort of frightening video for “Boreal,” a song off of last year’s self-titled debut. Set to the gentle swirl of pretty electronics and the charming beauty of singer Nicole Miglis’s voice, the video begins with bucolic, grainy footage of a tropical paradise. It quickly descends into the interaction between a young boy and a man dressed in a giant Wampa-looking costume. There’s a graphic dinosaur hatching, a knife fight and some mermaids. The whole thing manages to be endearing and really creepy at the same time, thanks to direction from Borscht Corp.
Check out the “Boreal” video below, and keep an eye out for the Boreal EP in the spring.
