TUNE OF THE DAY: DOLDRUMS ‘LOOPS’

doldrums125-year-old Montreal’s experimental pop connoisseurs Airick Woodhead’s project called Doldrums, shares ‘Loops’, another slice of his excitingly daring dance offering, lifted from his second full length, ‘The Air Conditioned Nightmare’, which is due out on April 6th via Sub Pop.

Airick explains: “This is a song for anyone who has been stuck in a vicious cycle with a partner. It’s about the emotional intelligence it takes to recognize the pattern and the courage to break free from it.”


On the ambitious new album ‘The Air Conditioned Nightmare’, Airick says: “Conflict is at the heart of this album. There’s a lot of paranoid sentiment and Dystopian imagery in there. The threat of a mundane reality ties it together, as does an obsession with plasticity”.
