Deerhunter – Living My Life

14.10.15, Words by: Natalie /

On the latest preview of their upcoming album 'Fading Frontier', Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox has directed and dedicated the video for Living My Life to jazz titan Miles Davis. A highlight of their seventh full-length, the semi-autobiographical song finds Cox in a state of stability and happiness, after constantly morphing identities for over a decade. Sonically set to the clean and aquatic climate guitar strokes from Lockett Pundt, the kaleidoscopic video has been described by Cox as thus:

"Macro meditations on geology and botany to the observations of afternoon light filtered onto the 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 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 release 'Fading Frontier' on October 16th through 4AD Records (pre-order).
