Firecrackers still

Marissa Nadler’s latest album is called July, and wouldn’t you know it, July starts today. Just in time for Independence Day — and for the North American tour that begins next week — Nadler has delivered a video for “Firecrackers,” an eerie old-timey ballad that casts the fallout from a July 4 breakup in explosive terms. The heavily filtered clip, directed by Ryan Hamilton Walsh of Boston indie-rockers Hallelujah The Hills, features Nadler moving backwards through myriad activities including guitar-smashing and water-splashing. It feels like grainy old footage from around the time when a song like this would have been a pop standard. Watch it below.
