Dan Deacon has pioneered a lot in his time dropping music. His production techniques alone are on another level. While his new album Mystic Familiar coming later this month, his new single “Become a Mountain” and its video should give you all the feels while also releasing any negativity you may be carrying around.
The track has a very calming nature to it. Opening with keys and a hint of arpeggio, Deacon’s voice comes in as the song arpeggiates more and more. The build is slow but a bit intense. With the whispered vocals, Deacon lets the music do all of the speaking, and it certainly calls out to you. The video has a similar affect. Opening with black and white imagery before adding pops of color, the colorful visuals snap whether against the monotone backing or on their own.
The video can be seen above or on YouTube. Mystic Familiar is ready to get preordered physically directly from Domino Recording Co. before its January 31 release date. Dan Deacon will be on tour beginning January 31 in Dublin, IE at Grand Social until May 02 in Washington, DC at 9:30 Club. His complete tour schedule is accessible here.
