Where some boys become friends with dogs or giant robots, the protagonist in Bowerbirds’ music video for “Tuck the Darkness In” has a unique bond with fish. Between fishing trips with his dad and visits to the local grocery store, though, the young lad slowly comes to realize the fate of all these cute fish. His reaction is part E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, part Free Willy, and 100% deterred from ever eating fish again.
The band’s latest album, The Clearing, is out today via Dead Oceans.
