Merchandise have presented a new video for ‘Crystal Cage’, the fourth in a series of visuals created by frontman Carson Cox for their latest album A Corpse Wired For Sound.
Filmed last summer in Palermo, Italy, Cox explains, “In this video we find an ambiguous man-spirit wandering a strange psychic realm caught between reality and an impossible dream place or paradise. The mirror, which has made an appearance in a lot of Merchandise videos, is made to be the wall or passage point between life, mystery, and an inner psychic realm.
Borrowing its title from a Joseph Cornell artwork, to Cox the crystal represents “unattainable success and virtue.”
