Last year the Brooklyn band Dinowalrus dropped “Grounded,” a warm jam produced by Jorge Elbrecht, and if that name sounds familiar it’s because he and Ariel Pink are responsible for one of the best songs of the summer. Now Dinowalrus have a music video out for “Grounded,” directed by Emmanuelle Pickett (who also directed an excellent video for the band’s earlier song “What Now”). Footage from the late ’60s and early ’80s (Electric Horseman, glimpsed on a marquee, is from 1979) weave together making the actual date, or source (this and this), of the footage feel entirely irrelevant — it’s as if the band is singing through our collective nostalgia for long summer nights. There are couples dancing, trips to the movies, late visits to fast-food joints all shuffled and rearranged in a hazy endless summer. Watch it below.
“Grounded” will appear on the band’s upcoming album, due out Summer 2014.
