I just followed the links from the "poster" of the video, Foundring.
Foundring is the moniker of singer-songwriter Kylan Kern, b. 1985 in
California. Classically trained on the piano and violin, his music is also
influenced by jazz and experimental rock, including bands like Sigur Rós,
Radiohead, Spiritualized/Spacemen 3, The Microphones, and The Brian
Jonestown Massacre. Being an accomplished pianist/keyboardist, his music is
heavily synth-laden, and displays an often atmospheric quality that
coexists well with his vocals, which draw from Thom Yorke, Jeff Buckley,
Conor Oberst, and Jónsi Birgisson of Sigur Rós.
