Watch New Portugal. The Man Video.
Brrrrrrrrrr. The new Portugal. The Man video for “Sleep Forever” sent the band back up to homeland Alaska to film on the very cold and very frozen tundra. Directed by Michael Ragen, the video features lead singer John Gourley racing on the back of a troop of sled dogs through the wilderness. The 13-minute video opens with Gourley riding peacefully through the snow over “Sleep Forever” and quickly changes to something much, much darker. It’s definitely not for the squeamish.
The video was premiered on IFC and can be watched below.
