Deerhunter - 'Living My Life' Video
Deerhunter : 'Living My Life' Video
13th October 2015

Ahead of this Friday’s release of their highly anticipated record Fading Frontier and forthcoming worldwide tour, Deerhunter have debuted a new track, ‘Living My Life’.

The third track shared by the band follows the mutant funk of 'Snakeskin' and luminous single 'Breaker'.  As with 'Breaker', Deerhunter kingpin Bradford Cox has taken on directorial duties for the video for 'Living My Life'.  The Atlantan describes it as, "macro meditations on geology and botany to observations of afternoon light filtered onto 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 pointless, and 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 where used to create a liquid fantasia for the song's transcendent climax."  The video is dedicated to Miles Davis.  You can watch the video via 4AD's YouTube channel here, or in the player below.  You can also stream the track on Spotify here.

Fading Frontier, Deerhunter’s seventh studio album, was written and recorded in the band’s hometown of Atlanta, GA, with production duties shared by the band and Ben H. Allen, continuing a collaboration that began with 2010’s acclaimed Halcyon Digest.  Fading Frontier also features contributions from Broadcast’s James Cargill and Tim Gane from Stereolab.  

"Remarkable album, one that only grows more awesome with each listen." - NME *****
"Thrilling” - Uncut (9/10)
"Certainly belongs in any discussion of their best." - Spin (9/10)
"Phenomenal" - Under The Radar (9/10)
"Deerhunter's most content, warm and plainspoken work to date." - Pitchfork (8.4 - Best New Music)
“Deerhunter’s most accessible songs yet are also their most affecting.” MOJO ****
