Video: Doldrums unveil skin-crawling single “Heater”

HeaterElectro explorers Doldrums are back with a new single, video, and an album that we're told takes a more refined direction than their previous work. Well, maybe not if the video for new single "Heater" is anything to go by.

The video channels Hammer Horror, with its film-noir lighting and projection of giant insects that will have your skin crawling. The single itself is a cracking mix of synth, guitar, and out-of-step vocals that combine to dizzying effect.

"Heater" follows on stylistically from the groundwork laid by "Runnerup", the first single from Doldrums' new Esc album, due 30th June 2017 via Sub Pop Records. It creates a diabolically focused melodrama. Other singles such as "Against The Glass", "Perv", and "Swim" continue this macabre styling, taking the listener far beyond common musical descriptors like ‘creepy’ or ‘haunted’ to outright terrifying.

Esc is available for pre-order on CD and limited edition vinyl here.
