Moonraker Premieres Video for “The Great Glass Elevator”

Today, we’re premiering a music video from Southern California’s Moonraker. The single, entitled “The Great Glass Elevator,” can be found on the band’s upcoming album, The Forest, out Friday, May 13th via Tiny Dragon Music, Bearded Punk Records, Bypolar Records, and No Time Records. The video for “The Great Glass Elevator” was animated by friend of the band Raine Hopper.

The band had this to say about the album and the new single:

“I think that the record is about overthinking. It’s a walk through your own head- your thoughts, your memories, your fears, and at the same time, it’s a walk through a forest. Maybe the further you walk in, the darker it gets, the more you start remembering, the more you start getting triggered, the more you lose track of time. Ultimately, I think it’s about trying to find a way out of that darkness and finding a way to turn the volume down on some of that overthinking.

This song, ‘The Great Glass Elevator,’ was inspired by an anxiety attack I had in the elevator of a hotel while I was delivering someone food. I don’t know if the person could tell I’d been crying in the elevator, but when they opened the door and saw me with their sandwich, they said something like, ‘Oh man, you’re my favorite person in the whole world!’ which made me feel better. But then realizing that THAT made me feel better made me feel even worse.”
