As Doldrums’ European tour and festival dates come to an end and they head off to the US to support Unknown Moral Orchestra, they release the brand new video for the final EP track, Copper Girl.
Copper Girl is the darker side to the 3-track EP. It’s a track that introduces a more melancholic and unnerving side to them which is equally shown in the video directed by American artist Alessandra Hoshor.
Doldrums’ music is about dealing with the loss of the individual, the peeling back of surface emotions to expose an attitude both utterly bleak and mesmerizing. The Egypt EP showcases this perfectly.
In 2011, Portishead heard Doldrums’ cover of their song Chase the Tear and placed it as the b-side to their single. Not only this but Doldrums’ also received the attention of cult London indie record label No Pain In Pop when new tracks fell into its hands. These were quickly confirmed for release as Empire Sound, Doldrums’ debut EP.
