Directed by Thunderlips, the concept for Sheep, Dog & Wolf’s “Breathe” is deceptively simple, and like most such concepts, sneakily powerful. I suppose there’s something subversively profound in watching people respond arbitrarily to life, as it were. In any case, in its own quiet way, the concept just works.

And that’s before we even get to the song, the latest from New Zealand artist Sheep, Dog & Wolf, real name Daniel McBride. In keeping with his usual alternative folk sensibilities, “Breathe” is perhaps McBride’s most beautiful song yet, ambling along at an almost meditative pace before finishing on a nice high. Enjoy our latest video of the week. Dillon M. Banda
