After releasing the first track “Snakeskin” off their upcoming LP Fading Frontier, Deerhunter have given us another musical taste with a new video trippy video for “Breaker”. The song and video are matched in their dreamy, captivating, aesthetic. Jangly washed-out guitars, confident laid-back vocals, and a catchy layered chorus make up “Breaker”. It’s weird and comforting all at once, kind of like the most chilled, mellow acid trip you ever had – nothing but the good vibes.
For those unfamiliar, Deerhunter is a seminal indie band fronted by Bradford Cox and have released some of the most critically acclaimed indie records over the past decade including 2008‘s Microcastle and 2010‘s Halcyon Digest.
With a track record like this and these new tracks, Fading Frontier is looking very promising. Deerhunter is set to release their sixth studio album Fading Frontier on October 16th this year via 4AD. Watch the video for “Breaker” above.
