Mercury Rev share video for "Coming Up For Air"

Mercury Rev shared the video for “Coming Up For Air,” the latest single off their new album The Light In You.

“Coming Up For Air” was shot in Houston and directed by Jonathan Caouette who is best known for his documentary Tarnation.  He said of the video, “I am so proud and geeked out to …be able to do something for Mercury Rev, who I have adored for many years. The music video for “Coming Up For Air,” is just one part of a mildly bigger project to come…and it’s been one of the utmost coolest music video/films that I have ever had an opportunity to work on. The video as a whole is inspired by one part, my love for this made for TV movie from the 1970’s called The Bermuda Depths and one part Sigmund Freud’s existential requiem, “On Transience.” I feel like the end result is on par to something kind of cool & ambiguous and hallucinatory-like.”
The Light In You (Bella Union) was released to world-wide critical acclaim in October and the band’s recent vinyl-only 7-inch release of album track “Rainy Day Record” is in for a second pressing after selling out. Mercury Rev are currently booking U.S. tour dates for later this year.
