Watch: Sondre Lerche - "When the River"

Seems like there's no stopping Norwegian singer/songwriter extraordinaire Sondre Lerche. He's continuing a constant stream of videos that are beginning to rival that of Beyonce. His fourth and latest (fifth if you count both versions of  "Domino") has him teaming up with his video directing wife Mona yet again. While "Go Right Ahead" featured scenes of adolescent angst and feeling out of place, "When the River" cranks the nostalgia dial to overdrive featuring super 8 footage of drummer Dave Heilman's childhood and overlaying them on Sondre Lerche and his band's performance to maximize the song's ability to effectively play your heartstrings. The band even delivers the track's anthemic shout vocals choir style. It's a great video for one my favorite tracks from the album.
