Dumb Waiter Explore Isolation & Rage In “WNDW” Video
This Friday, the jazzy hard rock group Dumb Waiter will put out their latest record, Tsk, a record that moves their freeform avant-garde sound forward with seven new bold tracks. In the lead-up to that release, Dumb Waiter has released a new looming music video for the song “WNDW,” which premiered last week over at MetalSucks.
The video, put together by Chris Damon, Nicholas Crider, and Kate Rivara, focuses on an unnamed facepainted person (played by Adrienne Shurte) wandering listless through the band’s improvisational verses, looking for meaning in soccer goals and forgotten trails, before coming alive in a distorted rage during the song’s menaching and strident breakdowns. Like the song itself, the video is arcane and eccentric, yet still thrilling and mesmerizing, a combination fans of Dumb Waiter have become accustomed to over the last decade.
This marks the second visual Dumb Waiter has released for Tsk after the video for “LTMBCN” dropped at the beginning of April. Both videos delight in enigmatic designs, though “WNDW” embodies a more isolated essence while “LTMBCN” focuses more on surreality.
Tsk is out everywhere on Friday, May 15th and you can pre-order it now over at Dumb Waiter’s Bandcamp page. Until then though, make sure to check out the video for “WNDW” below.
