JanSport Unzipped Compilation: Volume 2 contributors Big Tree just debuted their new music video for the track “Augury” from their latest album, This New Year.

Singer and songwriter Kaila McIntyre-Bader had this to say about the inspiration for “Augury”-

“The song is about succumbing to forces so much bigger than you or me, whether it’s letting yourself fall in love or letting the universe tug you in a new direction. Augury is a sort of divination.  I like to imagine the augurs of Ancient Rome fortelling the future just by paying attention to things most people forget to notice today, like the flight of birds and interpretations of our dreams.” 

Footage for the video was shot in the Marin Headlands near San Francisco, and additional footage was shot on location on Easter Island.

Big Tree will be finishing the summer with another brand new music video, followed by a busy fall that will see the release of new studio recordings tracked and mixed at Oakland’s New, Improved Recording with Eli Crews (tUnE-yArDs, ?uestlove of the Roots,  Nels Cline of Wilco, and many more) along with an October run of the West Coast and Pacific Northwest featuring headlining bills at Oakland’s New Parish on October 4th and SF’s Bottom of the Hill on October 19th.
