NABIL translates the intimacy of Bon Iver's widescreen ballad Towers with this gorgeous, cinematic promo.

Shot on location in Washington State and beautifully photographed by Larkin Sieple, an old fisherman - played by actor Mystic - takes his small wooden tower out to the much bigger wooden towers out at sea... An intriguing companion piece to Nabil's equally beautiful video for Holocene, shot in Iceland a few months ago.
