Northlane have released their brand new video for “Heartmachine”. Lifted from their recent albumMesmer, “Heartmachine” is the final video in the Mesmer collection, and its existence was alluded to in the album trailer that was released right before the surprise album drop.
A deeply personal song about the human condition, “Heartmachine” was directed by Jason Eshraghian and it premiered on Apple Music this week.

Frontman Marcus Bridge explains: “Heartmachine is a song about pain, heartbreak and loss. When the heart wants to heal and move forward, anxiety and depression work like a machine to drag you down again and again. I wrote this song in the studio after feeling low for months about a relationship that had fallen apart on top of other personal issues. I almost immediately felt a weight lifted off my chest when I started to release that pain through this song. As I let go of my heartbreak, represented through my relationship with the female character in the music video, my strength grows and I’m finally able to control my power at the end of it all.”
Northlane released Mesmer in March 2017 with no forewarning, which debuted at #3 on the ARIA Chart and earned the band their second ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock / Heavy Metal album that same year. In 2018, Mesmer has been on to be nominated for an AIR award for Best Independent Hard Rock, Heavy or Punk Album, as well as Best Artwork at the Heavy Music Awards.
