Marissa Nadler Shares Video For New Single “Blue Vapor”

With her much–anticipated new album For My Crimes due out 28th September via Bella Union and Sacred Bones, Marissa Nadler has shared “Blue Vapor,” the second single to be taken from the album along with a video directed by Thomas McMahan.

On the video, Nadler comments: “Thomas McMahan beautifully articulates the intangible sense of depersonalization depicted in the song. 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.
