Mercury Rev – Coming Up For Air

Here’s the new single from one of my favourite bands. Coming Up For Air is taken from the album ‘The Light In You’ by Mercury Rev, released back in October in the UK on the excellent Bella Union label.

Shot in Houston and directed by Jonathan Caouette (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.”
