DJDS – Trees On Fire

Early contender for my favorite song of the year, and now my favorite video as well. DJDS’s aching brand of electronica merges with a moving collage of lo-fi nature shots, interspersed among vocalists and video stars Amber Mark and Marco McKinnis. Despite being simple, the DJDS-directed “Trees On Fire” visuals somehow perfectly encapsulate the many layers of emotion that the song itself evokes.

“Trees On Fire” is available for free download today only, on KCRW.
