Bibio recently shot and recorded three singles off his latest effort Silver Wilkinson over the course of a day, in a friend’s shed/studio in rural Somerset, UK. Each of the videos weave Bibio playing in a trio – a rare thing, as he’s never played a live set with a band – with the pristine beauty of the English countryside. (Naturally, the majority of the performance footage was shot live and as is, with the exception of Bibio playing saxophone – that was added in later.)
“Raincoat,” was one of the songs he recorded and the song has the same simple, calming and yet psychedelic (or shall I say, otherworldly?) beauty found in a lot of Nick Drake’s work.
