Dinowalrus, fronted by visual artist and sometime guitarist of Titus Andronicus, Pete Feigenhaum, and backed by Max Tucker and Liam Andrew have released a new video for new single Beth Steel, out May 21st.
Directed by Argentinean Roberto Llauro the video uses the striking image of The Domino Sugar Factory as its centre piece – the same image gracing the cover of their anticipated debut UK release Best Behavior. Doused in electrifying hues and back dropped by swirls of galaxy it’s a trip offering welcome reminiscence to our own baggy scene, sparked by the likes of The Stones Roses, as well as to the band’s interests in krautrock, house music, post-punk and psychedelic rock.
The video can be viewed below
The album ‘Best Behavior’ will be released June 4th.
Pre order it now here:
Best Behavior was recorded in Brooklyn 2010 and 2011 with Nadim Issa and Matt Walsh(The Forms), and after a rotating cast of past drummers including Andy Bond(who would later join Friends) and Etienne DuGuay (who would later join Real Estate), features the sticks work of the Depreciation Guild’s Anton Hochheim, plus a brief cameo vocal appearance from longtime friend Patrick Stickles of Titus Andronicus on “What Now”. Remix work was done by Philly house mainstays Pink Skull, and Jez Kerr from 80s Manchester Factory Records post-punk legends A Certain Ratio.
