Pre-order Marissa Nadler’s new silver vinyl album.
Marissa nadler shared the second single from their awaited new album The path of the clouds, and this one features harpist Marie Lattimore. It’s called “If I Could Breathe Underwater” and it has a sort of retro 60s ballad vibe, but in that incredibly beautiful way that has become Marissa Nadler’s trademark. Marissa says:
When I wrote “If I Could Breathe Underwater,” I envisioned the possibilities of possessing various superhuman powers: teleportation, shapeshifting, energy projection, aquatic breathing, extrasensory perception, and time travel for n to name a few. As a lyrical device, I married these powers with events in my life, wondering if and how they might change the past or predict the future. I loved working on the melody of this song and bringing the choruses to their climax. Mary’s superimposed hallucinatory shimmers truly echo the underworld of the story.

Marissa also announced the release of an album in New York. November 14 at Poisson Rouge. Tickets are on sale now.
