“Half Dome” music video

September 18, 2015 3:39 pm

Last year, Chaz Bundick hiked to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite Park, the inspiration for his song “Half Dome” (off this year’s What For?), where he happened to meet R. Adam Prieto, a photographer and, coincidentally, a Toro y Moi fan. Chaz invited Prieto to create a music video for ‘Half Dome,’ and this spectacular clip is the result.

Check out the beautiful scenery in “Half Dome” here. The track was taken from the band’s album, What For?, available now on the Carpark shop and iTunes. Video was directed by R. Adam Prieto
