Mercury Rev released their latest album, The Light In You, back in September via Bella Union. Now the band has shared a video for "Coming Up for Air," which at first focuses on a couple's frayed relationship, but then gets a little stranger. Watch it below.

Jonathan Caouette directed the clip and shot it in Houston. He had this to say about the video in a press release: "I am so proud and geeked out able to do something for Mercury Rev, who I have adored for many years. The music video for 'Coming Up For Air,' is just one part of a mildly bigger project to come...and it's been one of the utmost coolest music video/films that I have ever had an opportunity to work on. The video as a whole is inspired by one part, my love for this made for TV movie from the 1970's called The Bermuda Depths and one part Sigmund Freud's existential requiem, On Transience. I feel like the end result is on par to something kind of cool & ambiguous and hallucinatory-like."
