Peel Dream Magazine have shared new single ‘Hiding Out’. It is taken from their upcoming album Pad, featuring the previously released cut of “Pictionary” and the title track. Check it out below, along with a video of the band surfing.
Speaking about the video, Peel Dream Magazine’s Joseph Stevens said in a statement:
“I’m from New York and I’ve never surfed before, but I’ve met quite a few surfers here in LA and there’s an obvious mystique to it. I asked my friend Leon if he had an extra board and would he take me to one of his spots in Malibu and we managed to friend Bryce to film it. I thought it would be funny to do an anti-surf video where all I do is fall over and over and I think we pulled it off. You can see the raw beauty of the landscape and the incredible vibes that were felt that day. There’s also an obvious connection to the Beach Boys – when I think of my favorite album, ‘Friends,’ that song and video channel that energy. Clean, but a little twisted. The song is about needing space, and the funny thing is, all the lyrics are about me hanging around Queens during quarantine walking. Calvary is Woodside Cemetery, where I would regularly walk (“They guard the gates of Calvary, a secret place to be”) and I talk about wandering to the Queensboro Bridge. On the one hand, I’m depressed, but k in oori I enter my own secret world full of magic and color. It’s weird singing a song about New York from the cliffs of Malibu, but then again, I’m hiding, isn’t it?
Pad arrives October 7 via Slumberland/Tough Love.
