Ready to get folked up?
Earlier this year, indie-country stalwart Bonnie “Prince” Billy (né Will Oldham) and Faun Fables mastermind Dawn McCarthy teamed up for an Everly Brothers cover album, What the Brothers Sang. Among the duets on the Drag City-released album is “Omaha,” for which they commissioned multimedia artist Ben Russell to make a video — and you can watch it exclusively here.
The clip features both singers’ faces the entire time as a series of other arty images come and go in the background. It is, we think you’ll find, a bit hypnotic.
Catch their video for “Omaha” below:
