Swell Season, "Low Rising"

(It's incredible to me that some musical duos -- Jack and Meg White, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, and Fleetwood Mac in various iterations -- can continue to work and create together after the breakup. I can barely be Facebook friends with some of my exes.)

New video by Swell Season, which is made up of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. Via Spinner.com:
The duo...find themselves going through their daily motions in the video -- eating eggs and toast, putting the tea kettle on the stove -- with a literal cloud over their heads that's silently infiltrating everything they do. The visualization matches the song's heavy yet hopeful tone when in the end, they step outside and see it's raining on everything and not just them. A smile and an embrace make it seem like things will be all right after all, and the feeling of enchantment returns.
