Saltland Shares "Light of Mercy" Video - Donating 100% of Bandcamp Sales to 350.org This Week

Saltland, cellist and activist Rebecca Foon, has shared a new video for “Light Of Mercy,” a standout from her new album A Common Truth. The video reflects the album’s themes of a changing planet, depicting a collage-like environment of rock and ice that slowly changes and becomes more intensely stark as the song progresses, eventually being engulfed by a deep red sky. It was directed by Brigitte Henry, and premiered this morning via PopMatters. The song is a perfect example of the incredible balance of beauty and melancholy that Foon employs throughout the album, which is out now on Constellation.
