Watch Eric Bachmann’s unpredictable
new video for “Mercy”
Eric Bachmann shares the new video for “Mercy” from his recently released self-titled album. Directed by Daniel Ralston and shot in downtown Los Angeles, the video features intrigue, blackmail and hungry hippos!
In their premiere of the video, The A.V. Club wrote: The music on Eric Bachmann is mellower and more direct than almost anything he’s done in the past, with lyrics that are more reflective of his personal feelings than any he’s ever written. That’s true most directly on “Mercy,” which reflects on life, death, and and crazy friends and family. So why not pair that serious song—probably the best on an excellent album—with an homage to James Bond villainy, Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation, and… something you’ll have to wait for.
