RVNG Intl. has shared a transfixing, mind-bending video for Oliver Coates' "Norrin Radd Dreaming."

A track from Coates' Shelley’s on Zenn-La album, which dropped via RVNG Intl. on September 7, "Norrin Radd Dreaming" was produced as Coates imagined Norrin Radd, Marvel's Silver Surfer’s name before becoming a superhero, "experiencing wanderlust while at home on his spiritually perfect planet of Zenn-La. His dreams might be of a more exciting life to come as a potential super-being." 

To further the concept, the video's director, Yoshi Sodeoka, interprets Norrin Radd's dreams through the lens of his hometown New York City, making "the most ordinary New York city footage into something experimental and engaging,” says Sodeoka. “I love watching birds in the city…[I] wanted to give them a focus in this video and imagine how birds see the city in a way that we don't. In a way, this is a video about a day in the life of New York city birds.”

The video, which you can watch via the player below, was shared ahead of Oliver Coates' US tour with Thom Yorke this fall, and a performance at Utrecht's Le Guess Who? festival this weekend. You can find Oliver Coates' tour dates below.
