Watch: Marissa Nadler – Firecrackers

As America prepares for its annual 4th of July celebrations, MARISSA NADLER has unveiled a timely video for “Firecrackers,” one of the highlights from her recent album July.

An eerie old-timey ballad that casts the fall-out from a 4th July breakup, the haunting video is directed by Ryan Hamilton Walsh and features Nadler moving backwards through various activities including guitar-smashing and water-splashing. Of the video Nadler says, “We must have broken every glass in my apartment making this video. A lot of things don’t break when you throw them. In all seriousness, the backwards footage seems to act as a visual replay to the memories that construct the song. This song is entirely autobiographical so it felt fitting to have a lo-fi home footage feel to the video rather than some big budget, slick production.”

Marissa Nadler will visit these shores at the end of August to play End Of The Road Festival before embarking on a UK tour.
