Premiere: Raindrop tease their new album with a washed-out vid for Bob Dylan's 116th Dream

The psychedelic, lo-fi track also comes ahead of an album launch show next week.

Bob Dylan’s 116th Dream explores the constant cycles one goes through that always seem to lead back to the same result, following the heart, not the mind,” says Raindrop's Miles Devine on the single, summing it up pretty perfectly. The single is a lo-fi, psychedelic-laden marathon, bringing together this washed-out vocal line with light synth melodies and a particularly snare-heavy percussion section for a long-winded, six-minute mini-opus which really draws on the 'dream' side of 'dream-rock'. With a new album out next Friday, Raindrop have released one last album tease – the official video for Bob Dylan's 116th Dream – which really layers on that hazy, psych-influenced side of things as it warps with its video effects and nostalgic sense.

Mild Meltdown, Raindrop's debut album, is set to be a bit of a showcase of this sound amongst many others when it drops on July 13th. Celebrating the release, you can catch him in action at the album's launch party the night after at Sydney's The Bank Hotel. Grab deets on that album below, but not before checking out the washed-out technicolour dream that is the video to Bob Dylan's 116th Dream.
