‘Packed Powder’ is the first music video from ‘And Then Like Lions’. “To me the character in the song is talking about a past of trying on these different guises in a half-hearted attempt to please someone else,” says director Good. “Deep down, though, he can’t shake the feeling that he’s destined for something else. I feel like the video kind of mirrors that in a way, it keeps trying to be a fairly straightforward, literal illustration of the song’s lyrics but repeatedly trails off into these flights of fancy, these surreal little tangents.”

The ‘Packed Powder’ video comes at an exciting time for Blind Pilot. The six-piece just taped a ‘Tiny Desk’ concert at NPR headquarters, where they performed ‘Packed Powder’ and three additional cuts from ‘And Then Like Lions.’ Pitchfork, who described the band as “the crown jewels of Oregon’s indie-folk scene” featured the band in their ‘The Pitch’ section:

Watch them perform “Packed Powder” on CBS This Morning:

‘And Then Like Lions’ was written and composed by Blind Pilot’s Israel Nebeker over the course of three years. The record is a transcendent, cathartic response to the loss of his father and end of a 13-year relationship. ‘Lions’ is Blind Pilot’s most exhilarating album to date; a lush 10-song collection that is resilient, uplifting and often majestic in the face of tragedy.

Blind Pilot has performed on Ellen and The Late Show with David Letterman, at the Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza. The group has shared stages with The Shins, Andrew Bird, Calexico and more. The project began in 2007 when Israel and co-founding member Ryan Dobrowski went on a West Coast tour via bicycle.
