Dr Dog Distant Light

Philly retro pop-rockers Dr. Dog have built a large following slowly but steadily over the past decade, largely by keeping up a maniacal touring schedule. They’ve just embarked on another lengthy jaunt in support of last fall’s B-Room, and to herald that run of concerts, they’ve graced us with a new video from the album. “Distant Light” is a bouncy, freewheeling track that would fit in well in The Last Waltz or late on the first disc of the White Album. Its visuals are suitably playful and subtly psychedelic, apparently the product of green screens, painted hoodies, and lots of nifty animation. Watch below, where you’ll also find the band’s tour itinerary.

  1. I really dig this song.

  2. The beginning sounds a lot like Tame Impalas “Feels like we only go Backwards.”
