New Music Video : Great Lake Swimmers - Palmistry

Off their Polaris short-listed, hauntingly beautiful album Lost Channels comes the video for the second single "Palmistry." It's nautical themed!

I love how Great Lake Swimmers (suggestive by their name) is inspired by nature. In fact, the great outdoors seems to have been a reoccurring theme in their videos. The previous single, "Pulling On A Line," is filmed in a forest and has children dressed in Where The Wild Things Are-esque costumes dancing and playing. Below is the video for "Your Rocky Spine," which is a lovely tune juxtaposing the depths and curves of nature and those of the human body.
