VIDEO PREMIERE: DAKOTA BLUE “PLAZA II”
L.A.’s Dakota Blue wants to get through to you any way he can: he makes zines, makes art and of course makes music, and that’s what brings us to this little late-night video interlude. “Plaza II”—from Blue’s coming Plaza To Plaza, a title which recalls a certain conceptually relevant album—has polished and pixelated 80s synths, a deadpan robo rhythm track and a pervasive spirit of something almost like paranoia. Maybe it’s a similar feeling to wondering if all those screens you’re watching are watching you back, or maybe that’s the idea in the video, with Blue hosting a talk show from a lost cellphone. Who’s the special guest? Well, he’s talking right to you, isn’t he? Plaza To Plaza is out Aug. 24 and you can pre-order it here!
