That’s what we call a kick-started career: get yourself a bunch of songs and an EP published, cover Portishead and make it on your single’s B-side, support Grimes on tour, and then put out your debut album on top of an EP. Airick Woodhead did just that with his band Doldrums (not to be confused with Joy Orbison’s record label of the same name).
The Montreal-based producer just released his limited 12″ vinyl single ‘Egypt’. Just as Doldrum’s music is spheric, multi-layered, distorted, and introverted post-bass, the new music video by director Allessandra Hoshor is somehow disturbing:
– Blurry VCR images? Check!
– Apparition imagery? Check!
– Trippy hippie visual art climaxing into a retro ice cream feast? Check!
Watch the music video premiere for ‘Copper Girl’ (and grab a free download of ‘Egypt’ and ‘Jump Up’) below, and get prepared for Doldrums’ yet untitled debut album to drop in late Autumn via Souterrain Transmissions and Arbutus Records.
