Doldrums has solidified his position as one of the year’s most progressive and promising new artists, lauded by critics as an innovator whose approach is shaping the future of electronic music. Following the Arbutus Records release of the well received debut, Lesser Evil, this past February, Doldrums delivers a fiercely energetic live show, with a national tour supporting Crystal Castles kicking off next week. FADER just premiered a swooping cinematic short film for “Lost In Everyone” today, co-directed by Angus Borsos and Woodhead

FADER writes, “until it explodes into a hallucinatory palette of oranges and blues, this Angus Borsos and Airick Woodhead-directed film for Doldrums‘ ‘Lost in Everyone’ is locked into a particularly cold-feeling grayscale, its breathtakingly photographed trees and puddles and dark corridors seeming only to underscore the inner restlessness of a single, wandering figure, who seems to be escaping to nowhere fast. We’re reminded of the timeless, colorless place that Milo visits at the beginning of The Phantom Tollbooth—and from which Montreal’s Airwick Woodhead took the project’s name—yet something in the song’s atonal lurch smacks less of childlike boredom than of a very adult kind of existential angst.”

BULLETT recently profiled Doldrums for their Future issue, giving readers an in-depth look into how Montreal influenced his style and sound as an artist, forming a clearer basis for what they call his “bizarre brand of blippy, tribal chaos-pop.” Interview Magazine sat down with Woodhead to chronicle more influences and inspirations behind the record, from the “ebullient ‘Egypt,’ first released as a single last summer; the Animal Collective-recalling ‘She Is the Wave,’ and ‘Lost in Everyone,’ featuring meandering electronics.”
