Astral Swans – FLOOD (feat. Julie Doiron) [Music Video]

Today Astral Swans dropped the music video for Flood which features Julie Doiron.
The leading single is taken from the upcoming self-titled eponymous album which comes out on October 8, 2021.
A cool mellow indie experimental alterna-pop tune.

About the track:
“Flood” was one of the earliest completed for the record.
“The objective was to create an upbeat, danceable pop song, that’s slightly sinister,” says Swann.

“The song has a lot of space and throwback production nods; think Scott Walker, meets Linda Ronstadt, meets Air. Julie’s background vocals then take it to a higher plane.
So musically we have all that going on, and then lyrically it’s from the perspective of this Dostoyevskian underground man, antisocial personality type, who’s literally dreaming about being the last man on earth, alone with the object of his desires.

The music is all glamour, contrasted against the unglamourous lyrics about the delusions of a 4chan incel.”

Flood gets:
/10.
