Dendrons channel a prog-rock sound on new single ‘New Outlook II’

Chicago’s Dendrons have returned with a video for their new single, “New Outlook II.”

The track comes from their forthcoming album, 5-3-8, out August 26th via Innovative Leisure. Lyrically, the track cycles between two refrains: “soon we’ll all be laughing too” and “Distance. Time. New outlook.” The accompanying video features glitchy, colourful, trippy shots of the band decked out in some hilarious disguises.

“It is a continuation of themes explored on the preceding album track, ‘New Outlook,'” the band’s Dave Jarvie explains, “how trial and error, personal aesthetics, and every perceived achievement is reduced to comedy with enough passing time. How there is freedom in that. It’s about holding your life loosely.”

Watch the video for “New Outlook II” below.

The title, 5-3-8, references a lyrical refrain on the album that refers to “fifths, thirds, octaves only.”

In addition to “New Outlook II,” 5-3-8 features the previously singles “Tangle” and “Wait in Line.”
