Poolside: “Feel Alright” Video

Poolside have shared a new video for their superb single “Feel Alright”, which feautres features legendary skateboarder Braydon Szafransk. The track “Feel Alright” is lifted from their second “Heat” LP, which will finally drop on May 18th.

Speaking about the video Poolside’s Jeffrey Paradise says: “The theme of ‘Feel Alright’ is about making the best of a subpar situation. More specifically in this video, it’s about being stuck in a life that’s not how you envisioned and still striving to find happiness and purpose. Skateboarding is used in a surreal way to symbolize Braydon’s attempt to escape his complacency by hitting the open road, yet the more he travels the more he goes nowhere fast. He can’t outrun himself or his life, however, along the way he lets go of the past. Braydon ultimately embraces the present and feels the satisfaction of living life in the moment, independent of external circumstances”. Watch the video above, and make sure to check out Yuksek’s remix of the track below.

Tycho: “Horizon (Poolside Remix)”

Tycho’s track “Horizon”, a highlight from 2016 LP “Epoch”, points towards an entirely new skyline here under the guidance of Poolside. They flip the original from an introspective instrumental into a cosmic boogie, complete with handclaps and a choral refrain. “I was looking for a counterpoint in production for the remix. Poolside gave it a much sunnier vibe,” says Scott Hansen of Tycho. Poolside adds,“It’s tricky to approach a Tycho remix because there are no vocals. By definition, a remix would typically strip away the textures and layers, which are the signatures of Tycho, and use the vocals. We kept the original melody as the fingerprints and added classic Poolside synths and percussion.” Blast it above.
