Bon Iver: Heavenly Father

wish i was here heavenly father bon iver

Zach Braff’s first directorial effort Garden State blew my mind as a high school junior back in 2004. Everything from the overwhelming melancholic feel of the film to Natalie Portman’s amazing performance that left me lusting after a pathological lying epileptic struck a chord with little 17 year old me. But my favorite aspect of the movie wasn’t any one performance or scene, it was the soundtrack. In addition to perfectly complimenting the story and feel of the movie, it introduced me to a world of music I never knew existed outside of the radio. I’ll never forget desperately waiting for the credits to close so I could find out who sang the final song that played as Braff and Portman reunited in the airport for a kiss (the song was “Let Go” by Frou Frou, and I still love it to this day). I expect Braff’s new movie Wish I Was Here to be no less incredible if judging by this new track from Bon Iver written for the film. Such a moving song. Check out Heavenly Father below.
