Amor de Días, consisting of Alasdair MacLean, front man for The Clientele, and Lupe Núñez-Fernández of indie-pop duo Pipas, have debuted their brand new video for "Wild Winter Trees." The band just wrapped up a North American tour with Damon and Naomi in support of their debut album Street of the Love of Days, available now on CD and LP in the Merge store.
Watch the video for "Wild Winter Trees" now!
The video for "Wild Winter Trees" was directed by Mikhaël Hers. Mikhaël Hers has directed three short films, including Charell and Primrose Hill, official selections of the International Critic's Week in 2006 and 2007 (Cannes), respectively. He featured a couple Clientele songs in a film called "Memory Lane," his first feature-length, that was presented at the 2010 Locarno Film Festival. After the band saw the premiere they thought it only perfect for him to direct the video for this single. The images work as an analog to the lyrics of the song, but deepen and focus its ideas of innocence lost and time passing.
This week, the band has teamed up with MAGNET to be guest editors on the website. Visit MagnetMagazine.com to enjoy their bi-daily posts through out Sunday, and check out their Magnet Q&A to learn more about the duo.
Street of the Love of Days is available on CD, LP and digital download in the Merge store.
