Caribou’s ‘Our Love’ music video will devastate you

10.07.14 3 years ago

A morning, into dusk.

I'm still a little rattled, after watching Caribou's mysterious and devastating music video for “Our Love.”

It's directed by Ryan Staake, who has turned other electronic, dance and beats-oriented jams into moving, strange little worlds, like for Alt-J's “Left Hand Free” and Steve Aoki, Diplo and Deorro's “Freak.”

“In 'Our Love,' I wanted to create a slow, brooding film that contrasted the seeming limitless of youth with the reality of death in later years. The film (which was photographed by Luca Ciuti) was shot on location in Ireland, at the beautiful Lough Ine House, about an hour and a half outside of Cork,” Staake said in a release.

“Our Love” is off of Caribou's excellent, dynamic new album of the same name, out now. Tour dates are below the video.

And if you're less familiar with Caribou, check out another clip, for “Yeti” off of “The Milk of Human Kindness” from 2005, which may confuse and delight you too.
