The Dear Hunter premiere the lyric video for the new song, “This Body.” The video was animated by the Dear Hunter's Casey Crescenzo and the song will only be available on the limited edition vinyl box set and full digital versions of the upcoming nine-EP The Color Spectrum, due out June 14 via Triple Crown. “This Body” comes from the Black EP.
Crescenzo says, “'This Body' is the fourth track off of the Black EP. At first, I wanted to create a percussion-only EP, but as the arrangements developed, the opportunity for a more grating and disorienting palette of sounds presented itself and I decided to take the tracks in a much more menacing direction. The entire EP uses a lot of electronic instruments and sequencing, but also a great deal of acoustic drums. This song in particular has three drum kits being played simultaneously through the song to keep the polyrhythmic feeling, as well as a good deal of sequenced analog drums. Lyrically, this record is definitely more negative than any of the other Color Spectrum EPs, but past the surface of these songs the meaning is more centered around breaking free of the negativity and embracing a different point of view.”
