Fol Chen sent director Chris Wilcha (This American Life Showtime series / The Target Shoots First) to Iceland to film amidst the volcanic dust from the erupting Eyjafjallajökull for their new music video, “In Ruins.”

Two Icelandic youth wander through an apocalyptic wasteland wearing masks just to breathe and see amidst the dust.  “In Ruins” is from Fol Chen’s Part II: The New December.  Director: Chris Wilcha // Producer: Petur Sigurdsson // Director of Photography: Tómas Örn Tómasson //Editor:  Catherine Bull // Featuring: Gudfinnur Sveinsson & Elìn Elisabet Einarsdóttir

Jónsi and the volcano

Regardless of the travel havoc it caused, the Icelandic volcano is at least a wonderfully, gorgeous and immensely beautiful part of nature.  Here is some video footage of Eyjafjallajökull paired with the song “Kolniður” from Jónsi‘s solo album Go:

Video shot by Sean Stiegemeier on a Canon 5d mkII.  Jónsi is the lead singer from Sigur Rós and a musical ambassador out of Iceland.  It doesn’t strike me as odd that his music mirrors the beauty of his native landscape.
