About to embark on a European tour which arrives in the UK next week, MARISSA NADLER has just unveiled a typically beautiful video for new single ‘Drive’, the opening track from her critically-acclaimed album July.
The video for ‘Drive’ was directed by kindred spirit Naomi Yang of Galaxie 500 and Damon and Naomi fame. Of the video Marissa says: “It was such a pleasure to work with Naomi Yang. I’ve long-admired her work in music, first discovering her through Galaxie 500 and then through Damon and Naomi. More recently, I became an admirer of her music videos and fell in love with them. She really got to the heart of what this song is about. The surreal, dreamlike shots of me twirling through the roads and landscapes, contrasted with the stills from everyday life, encapsulate the essence of ‘Drive’ completely. I think the song is one of contrasts, and the video magnifies both the good and bad, the still and the moving, and the blurred line between dream and reality.”
