In Their Words: “‘Dopamine’ is a bit of observational music about an endless cycle in which I, myself, am admittedly caught up and how we work to sift for the truth amidst all the alternative stories being broadcast to us at every moment of every day. I thought it would be fun to create a progressive, cacophonous verse that felt reflective of the overstimulation so many of us experience.
“Making the performance video for this tune was an absolute blast. Our friend Greyson Welch was the master behind the visual story of a previous project of ours called Principium, and we could not have been more thrilled at the opportunity to work with him again, and this time with his pals at Cedar Creative out of Birmingham, Alabama. Once again, I feel like he’s just made us look a lot cooler than we actually are, so don’t be fooled.
“We shot this performance (and a few others coming soon) at Historic Rock Castle in Hendersonville, Tennessee. We wanted to capture as best we could the energy of what it feels like to be at one our shows. I think the crew did an incredible job of creating that engaging visual experience, and I’m so excited for people to see it, and the other videos following it in the weeks to come.” — Lincoln Mick, The Arcadian Wild
