Video Premiere: VAR – “Run”

Posted: by admin

Iceland’s VAR, who you might’ve caught on our Twitch stream live session last week, dropped their sophomore LP The Never-Ending Year earlier this year on Spartan Records. It’s a beautiful flurry of spacious post-rock, anthemic alt-rock, and even languid dream pop at times. Think post-rock legends Sigur Ros, or maybe Jenifever.

Today we’re premiering the video for single “Run,” which finds the band performing on a beach framed by crashing waves. It’s the perfect backdrop for a song like “Run,” at once serene and propulsive. 

If you like what you hear, you can listen to the rest of The Never-Ending Year on Bandcamp:
