Okkervil River – “Your Past Life as a Blast”

Okkervil River have premiered a second music video for “Your Past Life as a Blast.” The video was directed by Isaac Ravishankara and filmed with actors Benedict Mazurek and Margaret Miller in New Paltz, NY. The song comes from the band’s latest record, ‘I Am Very Far,’ which was released in May through Jagjaguwar.

“My initial inspiration came from some of William Faulkner’s novels, especially The Sound and the Fury, where the same story is told from four unique perspectives,” Ravishankara told IFC. “Also, I had been reading a lot about how the brain processes time, and also thinking a lot about meaning in juxtaposed images.”
