Video Clip of The Week: Dinowalrus, “Falling to the Periphery”



Sunday is the second best day to nurse an Acid Hangover, amiright? Just after the release of their fourth studio album Fairweather, synth-psych stalwarts Dinowalrus have debuted their trippy video for standout track “Falling to the Periphery”, and it is pretty darn groovy. The color-saturated visuals are the perfect match for the electronic echoes, making for a video that could easily be mistaken for something filmed in the late 80s-early 90s.

Although heavily dosed with electronics, Fairweather contrasts the dystopian industrial arpeggiators of their previous albums with a warm, timeless palette of organs, looped breakbeats, and radio-ready vocals — including the occasional psychedelic flourish of reversed guitars and exploding delay trails. As a result, the music moves forward by looking back, bringing to mind the work of contemporaries like Jagwar Ma, Tame Impala and Deerhunter, while also incorporating some of the more exciting and psychedelic pop sounds of the early ’90s Creation Records back catalog with aesthetic nods to The House of Love, Primal Scream and Ride. Enjoy!
