Dan Deacon Releases Video for “Fell Into the Ocean”

Last month via DominoDan Deacon released his new album, Mystic Familiar, “a study in vulnerability and the simultaneous jubilance and anxiety that often accompany it” (Interview). Today, he presents a video for Mystic Familiar’s “Fell Into the Ocean.” Directed by Ariel Fish, it features a guided meditation deck of cards created by Deacon, which ties together the concept of the Mystic Familiar through a 3 stage guided meditation. The deck of cards will be available on Deacon’s upcoming lengthy North American tour, which kicks off next week.

Dan and I originally connected over Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies, which is a deck of cards used to help you creatively unblock yourself,” says director Ariel Fish. “In the video we wanted to do a sort of homage to Oblique Strategies by creating a deck of cards featuring ‘Fell Into The Ocean’ lyrics which would encourage the characters to find answers to their dilemmas within.
