DJDS, the L.A. dance-producer duo of Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy, used to go by the name DJ Dodger Stadium, and they gave us the great album Friend Of Mine last year. In August, they unveiled their name change with a memorable, oddly beautiful video for “You Don’t Have To Be Alone.” And with the new album Stand Up And Speak coming early next year, they’ve made another one for the urgent title track, bringing some of the same apocalyptic-impressionism vibes as their last video. This one shows us little kids, in gas masks and hazmat suits, boogie-boarding on a beach outside what looks like a chemical plant. It’s beautifully shot, but it’s also a loaded and sobering vision. Daniel Pappas and Nick Walker, the group’s regular collaborators, once again direct. Check it out below.
Stand Up And Speak is out 1/29 via Loma Vista/Body High.
