Justin Vernon, when he is not writing music for Bon Iver or working with Kanye West at Glastonbury or working on his other endeavors, writes songs for Los Angeles indie-choral ensemble, the Silver Lake Chorus. This summer, the group released their self-titled album, which features songs written by indie-rock pioneers such as Tegan And Sara, Ben Gibbard, Wayne Coyne, and Vernon, whose song now has a music video. “From The Snow Tipped Hills,” in a typical fashion for Bon Iver, is airy and floaty, with Vernon’s songwriting getting enhanced by the group’s vocals. The video is shot with drone technology overlooking a California sunset and the nature of the whole performance is enchanting. Watch here.
The Silver Lake Chorus is out now through Six Degrees Records.
