Melbourne artist Dinosaur Beard has returned with a fresh cut of hazy, textured indie/folk rock with new single ‘Dialect Drum’ and today he’s premiering the track’s accompanying visuals.
‘Dialect Drum’ delicately teeters between dark and light textures, visually, sonically and thematically, Dinosaur Beard expressing the fear and the triumph that is vulnerability.
“It’s a tale of breaking through those egoic walls that can hold people back at the start of a relationship and having the courage to be open and vulnerable to each other for the first time, he explains. “When creating this song with my mate [producer] Aaron Dobos, we really tried to encapsulate that feeling within the mood of the song. We have a no rules approach in the studio, the weirder the better.”
The video, directed by Spike Mackenzie, continues that narrative. “I wanted to try and make the clip symbolic of the narrative of the song; the way we are held hostage by our own insecurities, as one person awakens and waits for the other.”
