TRACK OF THE WEEK: Chad VanGaalen’s “Where Are You”

FEATURES|Recent|Track of the Week


Alberta, Canada’s Chad VanGaalen is set to return with his fifth studio album, Shrink Dust  (his first solo release since the 2011 record, Diaper Island) on April 29 via Sub Pop Records. “Where Are You” is the second track on the upcoming record. The song is lo-fi and a bit bizarre, as per VanGaalen’s usual work, placing us in sci-fi territory with spaced out sound effects layered over VanGaalen’s near-yell of “Where are you.” It’s an extremely interesting listen—catchy in the least obvious way possible.

Listen to the track on Soundcloud, or watch the accompanying video below, with amazingly weird animations galore!
