“CURL OF THE BURL” FROM BAND’S ACCLAIMED ALBUM THE HUNTER
The “Dry Bone Valley” video is “basically about waking up to find yourself being chased by death and having to reckon with dying and what that actually means to you,” Biskup explains. “It’s a life/death metaphor where the girl in the video goes from hunted to hunter. There’s a whole lot more going on metaphorically, and the symbolism goes very deep and is very specific, but I’ll leave the rest up to interpretation.” Watch the new video below.
