Los Angeles-based musician and illustrator Dakota Blue releases his fourth record My Idea of Perfection on March 19 and in the run up to the album he’s put out a trilogy of songs about lying and deception. Today, following last year’s ‘Designs for Lying‘ and ‘Lie Right‘, we are delighted to bring you the premiere of the video for the final instalment ‘Frequent Liar’.
The track conjures up a dark dreampop landscape in a style that Blue has dubbed “new wage” due to its combination of new wave and new age styles, with fretless bass and shimmering production adding a retro 80s sheen which is matched by the visuals of Dakota posed against the greenery of the Hollywood hills.
Speaking of the track and video, Dakota explains “In the song I take on the persona of a “frequent liar,” pathological and full of excuses. The video expands upon this concept and I adopt the guise of a film exec, delivering his monologue via cellphone and conference calls from Malibu to Burbank.”
Dakota Blue’s fourth album My Idea of Perfection is due for release on 19th March.
