Deerhunter have revealed a new video for ‘Living My Life’, a track taken from their new album ‘Fading Frontier.’
‘Fading Frontier’ is the indie rock group’s seventh album and follows on from 2013’s ‘Monomania’. It will be released on October 16 via 4AD.
The Atlanta band, consisting of Bradford Cox, Moses Archuleta, Josh McKay and Lockett Pundt were inspired by “macro meditations on geology and botany to observations of afternoon light filtered onto wooden floor” for the kaleidoscopic visualisations in the new video, which was photographed and edited by frontman Bradford Cox with additional photography by guitarist Lockett Pundt. A note beneath the video on the band’s YouTube page reads “dedicated to Miles Davis”, the legendary Jazz musician.

As reported by Consequence of Sound, the band commented on the new video:
“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.”
Deerhunter will also play shows in the UK and Ireland during October and November, including dates in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Dublin, Leeds, Brighton and Glasgow. Tickets for those gigs went on sale on Friday (August 21).
Cox recently claimed during his set with side project Atlas Sound at NXNE festival that the new Deerhunter album “sounds like INXS”.
Deerhunter recently shared the lead track from the new LP in the form of ‘Snakeskin’. Watch the video here.
