SONG OF THE DAY Marissa Nadler – Blue Vapour

Marissa Nadler has recently released the second single from her forthcoming album, For My Crimes and, as distinct and striking as ever, Blue Vapour is as hauntingly bewitching as any of her previous works.  Woven around a seemingly abundant delicate web of ethereal vocals, this new track is also accompanied by an equally alluring video which was directed by Thomas McMahan (of Netflix’s show Altered Carbon)

Speaking of the video, Nadler explains how: “Thomas McMahan beautifully articulates the intangible sense of depersonalization depicted in the song. He makes some heads explode and incinerate everything in sight. He does so beautifully and seamlessly and leaves Blue Vapor a gorgeous monochromatic world to exist in. Taking an abstract approach, he utilizes various experimental and mixed media animation techniques, merging the mood and imagery of the song with hallucinatory visuals that make me go ‘wow’ like I wanted to. His videos for Autolux and Drab Majesty, among many others, really stand apart for me in their uniqueness and artfulness. I hope to make more videos with Thomas because he has an amazing ability to transform the mundane into the supernatural.” 

Check out the video above.  For My Crimes is out September 28th via Bella Union/Sacred Bones Records, pre-order your copy from here.
