Watch Forest Swords' New Video for "The Weight of Gold"

In anticipation of Forest Swords' extensive world tour, the UK artist born Matthew Barnes has offered up a new video for "The Weight of Gold," a standout cut from his debut album for Tri Angle, Engravings. Directed by Benjamin Millepied, the striking piece features androgynous dancer Billy Barry bounding over barren landscapes throughout Israel, as the atmospheric track nudges Barry's primal movements with drum clacks and howling waves of filtered guitar. The video—which premiered today over on Nowness—can be peeped via the player below, where the remaining dates of Forest Swords' international tour can be found after the jump.
