Listen: Doldrums - Runnerup


The Canadian avant-pop maestro and Grimes collaborator, Doldrums, has announced the release of a new album entitled 'Esc', the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to 2015's spellbinding 'The Air-Conditioned Nightmare'. The artist known to his mum as Airick Woodhead has just shared an online taster in the form of the opening single, 'Runner Up', a brooding, muggy slab of electronic r'n'b that commands the listener's attention and strikes a balance between distressed song-craft and sensual digital atmospherics.

'Esc' is released on June 30th and is available for pre-order on Bandcamp. Watch the video for Runnerup on YouTube below
