deerhunter – helicopter

Deerhunter have recently posted a video for Helicopter, one of the most remarkable efforts from their new album Halcyon Digest. Helicopter glides dexterously through the sky as the name suggests, building on recent chillwave dynamics and sat on a rhythmical template shared by the likes of Toro Y Moi or Washed Out. There’s something bigger going on here too, it’s incredibly well thought out, sounding monolithic yet somehow reachable, distant yet close. I’m sure you’ll understand what I mean when you check out the video –
