A Love Letter to NYC by Ryan McGinley + Sigur Rós
This hypnotizing, playful and beautiful music video for Varúð by Ryan McGinley makes us fall even more in love with the Big Apple. From downtown to uptown, the band’s haunting vocals and the bird’s eye view of the street give a slow and tranquil peek into the city that never sleeps. Enjoy!
