Today we’re excited to announce that Montreal’s Doldrums returns with a new album ‘E s c’ set for release June 30th. The album features collaborations including Petra Glynt and Tobias Rochman of Peleda, and was mixed by Matthew Otto (Majical Cloudz). The first single & video from the album ‘Runner Up‘ is online now.
Doldrums’ Airick Asher Woodhead explains the ‘Runner Up’ video when he said: “We shot it in my apartment with one of my best friends. The idea was to show the skin out of context, as sort of alien. The way it turned out you don’t know whether it’s seductive or gross, I’m fascinated by stuff that walks that line.”
Speaking about the forthcoming release, Doldrums sent the following message to his fans…
There is a new Doldrums record . Made it in Montreal, mostly by myself. Took some time off traveling n hung out with the ppl I love, going out all night and coming back to the Torn to sing in the mornings. Petra Glynt and CCB helped work out the jams for some live shows with the roto toms and electribe, and from there edited it together from hundreds of hours of material.
E s c is coming. This song is gonna be on it. Can’t wait to share more with u <3″
Doldrums appeared in 2010 with a series of noisy, percussion heavy tracks and collaged videos that challenged digital identity. Since then the project has oscillated between pop and noise, following singer Airick Asher Woodhead through 2 LPs, 7 singles / EPS, a VHS, 2 Boiler Room performances, as well as various live performances over the world.
‘E s c’ will mark the third step in Doldrums‘ album collection, following on from 2013’s ‘Lesser Evil’ and 2015’s ‘The Air Conditioned Nightmare’. It is set for self-release on June 30th.
