Hundred Waters - Boreal music video

Dropped by Robert Miller

With the new My Bloody Valentine album circulating the nets, Destiny’s Child making a comeback during last night’s Super Bowl XLVII and Fall Out Boy returning to (quote, unquote) “Save Rock and Roll”, 2013 is shaping up to be an interesting and exciting year with barely a month in the bag (well . . . not including the last Fall Out Boy tidbit; that falls more under the “Hmmm, doesn’t that blow?” category).

Now, Gainesville’s Hundred Waters boys and girls have finally released an official music video for their stunning and whimsical track “Boreal,” which was our favorite song from 2012. It comes from their self-titled album, and you can watch the video below. It takes a beautiful, scenic portrait of nature, characteristic of the group’s aesthetic, but then grinds it up into an MGMT-esque child-confronts-terrifying-puppeteer-monster mayhem.
