We haven’t quite had time to recover from Doldrums‘ latest single “Runnerup”, and now he’s already hitting us with “Heater”. A far more in-your-face track, it features a pummelling sequenced bass synth and clattering claps, and masterful quick cuts between sections, all-in-all the most innovative club track we’ve heard since, possibly, “Loops”. And the video’s excellent too! Directed by Jordan Minkoff, it sees the band performing on a creepy cable access show that’s straight out of your most wonderfully surreal nightmares.
Doldrums is readying his third album Esc for release June 30, with July release shows in Toronto and Montreal. All info and pre-orders are at Bandcamp.
