Dream pop duo tiny deaths release video for new single "Always"

Dream-pop duo tiny deaths have released the video for their latest single, "Always". The single from the Minneapolis-Brooklyn group dropped last month, taking listeners on a echoing journey of growing pains. The accompanying music video -- which seems to take inspiration from the classic one for Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" -- depicts the song's themes in the form of interpretive dance, showing a younger and older woman in various stages of tenderness and at ever-changing distances. Vocalist Claire de Lune layers her voice in soothing harmonies over producer Grant Cutler's beat-keeping bass and drums. The pulsing single is part of the band's upcoming LP, which will hit shelves this fall via Handwritten Records. Watch the video for "Always" below. - Will Sisskind

Dream pop duo Tiny Deaths unveils 'The Gardener' from upcoming 'Night Flowers' EP

Dream pop has exploded in the NYC scene in the last decade, and the feeling we have is that the genre is slowly gathering more and more attention (also thanks to artists like Lana Del Rey, not exactly an indie scene dear, but nonetheless responsible for introducing a mellow and uber-dreamy pop sound to many new music fans). Tiny Deaths, who sound nothing like Lana, and whose name is a translation of how French people call sexual peak, is a duo based in Minneapolis and Brooklyn. They released their debut, self titled EP last year, and recently unveiled a new, four track release entitled 'Night Flowers' (two singles streaming below). They seem to specialize in sparse, mostly electronic midtempos highlighting singer Claire de Lune's celestial melodies drenched in otherworldly reverb. Looking forward to see them in NYC - no shows scheduled here at this stage.

We added "Ever" to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
