Meric Long – the frontman for The Dodos – is releasing Barton’s Den which is a new solo album as his musical project FAN. “What a Mistake” – off of the upcoming release – is a song about trying to communicate with someone that is no longer here, and now has an accompanying video for the world to see. The video features Long singing the song on television and laptop screens in public places, other shots display him walking down the street and being followed by a man whose face is pixilated. Then it shows that the person that is gone is communicating with the living through an object that was once theirs. It is thought-inducing and moving, and a necessity for your music catalog.
