A few days before releasing their seventh record Fading Frontier, Deerhunter have brought us a new vid!
‘Living My Life’ was directed by Bradford Cox.
The Atlantan describes it as, “macro meditations on geology and botany to the 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 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 were used to create a liquid fantasia for the song’s transcendent climax.” Watch it below.
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.
The record was made by founding members Bradford Cox, Lockett Pundt and Moses Archuleta, and bassist Josh McKay. Written in their hometown of Atlanta, GA, production duties were shared by the band and Ben H. Allen III, continuing a collaboration that began with 2010’s Halcyon Digest.

The duo have just launched a video for their killer new track ‘Paul Is Alive’, watch it now.
“I think ‘Paul Is Alive’ is about finally finding the water that you can breathe in, finding a place or a person that makes you feel like you,” Matt explains. “It’s very much my story of what Cincinnati was like, growing up and falling in love with music, discovering these little places where like-minded people could find each other.”
