NEW SINGLE & VIDEO FROM WEATHERMAN

Night Games / Dopamine is the second single in a series of 3 from Chicago's Weatherman. Here, they continue exploring new sounds and forms in their own brand of minimalist-pop.  Annie Higgins expands her palette, moving between piano and organ, and layering her vocals.  Jason Toth tinkers with heavily-effected drums, and Joshua Dumas pulls sounds from disparate sources – a field recording of a broken bus engine, an actual mellotron, and a soup of Korg MS-20.

Listen / Purchase the digital single directly from us:  BandCamp Store
