Watch: Band of Horses – Knock Knock

Band of Horses

For your weekend pleasure, Band of Horses and director Jared Eberhardt have debuted a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek, vintage nature video clip for band’s emphatically jubilant single, “Knock Knock” from the forthcoming Mirage Rock.

The video kicks off with a zoology professor and his team introducing the footage of their exploits tracking captivating creatures (BoH) rocking out in their natural habitats. Eberhardt takes advantage of the stunning beauty of the wild frontier surrounding Salt Lake City, UT and captures the band playing atop majestic rock formations and in the round, as well as running through the breathtaking setting. It’s a refreshingly lighthearted clip directed with a skilled hand that perfectly suits the Mirage Rock anthem.

Frontman Ben Bridwell said, “(The shoot) was an exciting adventure for us – getting to see these beautiful parts of Utah and being around the great group of people that Jared hired for the shoot. It seems fitting that we’d finally get to shoot a video around Salt Lake City as we’ve got a song that pays tribute to the area called “The Great Salt Lake” from our first album. Better late than never.”

The Glyn Johns-produced (The Who, The Faces, Eric Clapton) Mirage Rock will be released September 18 on Brown/Columbia. Enjoy the clip for “Knock Knock” courtesy of NPR.
