Video Premiere: For Today “Bitter Root”

For Today have shared a new music video for heavy ballad “Bitter Root” from their new album, Wake, which officially hit stores today. The video, like the song, is relatively minimalist, but within that apparent simplicity lurk some exquisite flourishes. “Bitter Root” is calm, clean-sung, and cleverly percussive for more than half of the song until it crescendos into a well-placed burst of unclean vocals and heavy chords. It’s a bit outside their usual MO, but For Today meet the challenge of evolution beautifully with this one. Check out the music video below and let us know what you think of “Bitter Root.”
