Here it is >>> a brand new video for Taken By Trees’ “Large.” The song is off her recently released album, Other Worlds. Directed by Ariel Rechtshaid (Solange, Blood Orange, Usher), the video was shot entirely on an iPhone. A baseball-capped Victoria strolls through the streets of Los Angeles, stopping to interact with a variety of places and people. “As I head to the top. Heading for something, never stop. Is this what you had in mind?” Watch above or at Gorilla vs. Bear.

Rechtshaid waxes poetic on the process of creating the video with Bergsman:

I used to live in downtown L.A.
I’d spend many hours alone in some of these places.
I have intense associations to a different time in my life when I visit these places.
I wanted to catch the vibe of reflecting on these feelings.
Vicky B is new to LA. She’s just discovering these places.
We found a dope band playing in the lobby of the Bonaventure.
They felt the vibe.
We took it back to EPA and the LA river.
It gets hectic on EPA.
Vicky reps West Coast well.
Can I get some free Apple shit for doing this?
– Ariel Rechtshaid

“…a relentlessly chill confection…[Bergsman] succeeds in generating a summer feel-good vibe so potent, it’ll feel all the better come winter.”
