Dendrons sing of the role of chance on new single ‘Wait in Line’

Chicago’s Dendrons have shared a video for their new single, “Wait in Line.”

The track comes from their forthcoming sophomore album, 5-3-8, out August 26th via Innovative Leisure. Today’s dynamic new track sees Dendrons finding the perfect blend of loud, anthemic instrumentals and softer moments of reflection. The accompanying video comes packed with trippy, colourful animations that fit the track perfectly.

“The song is influenced by The Lottery in Babylon, a short story by the magical realism author, Jorge Luis Borges,” Dendrons singer-guitarist Dane Jarvie explains. “Dealing with the role that chance supposedly plays in life, and a political and socio-economic system that operates and revolves around that variable as dogma, followed by its subsequent corruption of it. In many ways, it is a criticism of the human tendency to claim dominion of nature and capitalize on it anyway.”

Watch the video for “Wait in Line” below.

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