Marissa Nadler Posts Striking Video For New Single Blue Vapor

Tuesday, 07 August 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Marissa Nadler has released a video for her new single.

Blue Vapor is set to feature on ‘For My Crimes', which will be released on September 28 through Sacred Bones and Bella Union, who also put out her 2016 LP 'Strangers'. October dates in Manchester and London will follow, along with European shows and a support run with the Decemberists in the US.

The early stages of the track have a touch of Bruce Springsteen’s solitary ‘Nebraska’ to them, but Nadler’s seamless harmonies with Kristin Kontrol add real warmth to the chorus. The song’s denouement is accompanied by increasingly volatile imagery in director Thomas McMahan’s video, where percussion is added by former Hole drummer Patty Schemel alongside Janel Leppin's strings and sax from Dana Colley.

“Thomas McMahan beautifully articulates the intangible sense of depersonalization depicted in the song,” Nadler said in a statement accompanying the clip. “He makes some heads explode and incinerates 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.”

Marissa Nadler Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Mon October 29 2018 - MANCHESTER Gullivers
Tue October 30 2018 - LONDON St Matthias Church

td#right {display:none !important;} A new year brings with it the chance to look ahead after a few weeks of looking back over our shoulders. In musical terms, we can start to think about the artists who’ll capture our attention on summer festival stages, or during opening slots for existing favourites. We can ponder the singles that’ll leap from radio waves or playlists into the fabric of our day-to-day. Here we’ve assembled 10 artists we believe will make 2019 one to remember—some of them are about to release debut records, others are starting to pound the pavement in support of music that deserve time to shine.

But then we also have bands like Puppy, who are able to cast that whole argument in the comic light it often deserves.
