Bon Iver’s “Holocene” references our current geological period, and Bon Iver, Bon Iver, as an album, references the cycles of birth, living and death. The landscape of Iceland, with its mountains, glaciers, and waterfalls, recalls the past where volcanoes once shaped the earth and where ice caps currently melt. It looks like the most marvelous place on Earth.
Director Nabil Elderkin went to Iceland in search of these dramatic landscapes to film a music video for “Holocene,” and the resulting video appropriately premiered this morning on the website of National Geographic.
