On October 16th, Deerhunter return with its new album, Fading Frontier, through 4AD. With just days to go before the big release, Bradford Cox & co. have broken off another piece of the LP with the charming “Living My Life”.
The peaceful number comes with an equally laid-back visual in which the band can be seen hanging around a cozy town. The clip, which is dedicated to Miles Davis, was directed by Cox, who also handled video duties for the band’s previous single, “Breaker”. Cox described the visual as:
“macro meditations on geology and botany to observations of afternoon light filtered onto wooden floors. The idea was to have a formless visual that does not conform to the overwhelming cleverness and narrative ambition of most modern videos. Instead we have a sometimes pointless, sometimes ridiculous, and sometimes hypnotically beautiful mess of images and rhythm. The final section of the video, in particular, could be a teenage garage band take on Tarkovsky’s Solaris. Various chemicals and dyes were used to create a liquid fantasia for the song’s transcendent climax.”
