Doldrums, the Montreal-based electronic music project fronted by Airick Woodhead, is back with a music video for their new song "Heater." The track follows a pattern set by the best Doldrums tunes: create an instrumental that's an engaging confluence of genre, grounded by Woodhead's talent for pop melodies. In the case of "Heater," the music is a barrage of industrial and dark techno that fires at the rate of a malfunctioning supercomputer. The video, directed by Jordan Minkoff, is a public access teen-centric show called Teen T.V. that's pulled from a darker region of the subconscious. It's no adults allowed, so send your parents out of the room or the silver-headed teen with the alien claw will crawl out of your monitor.
"Heater" is our TV debut, with me, Petra Glynt and CCB ripping it up on a set inspired by sketchy late night talk shows - ESC TV," Woodhead told The FADER over email. "This shows what a couple of friends can make in a day of guru-fueled DIY mayhem. More soon, stay tuned xo _errhead.”
ESC is out June 30. Preorder it here.
