Toro Y Moi's third album arrives on January 22 and it's shaping up to be yet another evolution of the chillwave originator's bewitching sound. The first taste of Anything in Return came in October with "So Many Details," a hazy mashup of intimate R&B and woozy synth work. New single "Say That" laces a jazz-sourced sample with bells and whistles borrowed from house music, and Chazwick Bundick's detached declaration that, "She's alright, I'm alright / They're alright, we can't go back."
As with the video for "Details," this latest clip plays with juxtaposition. Then, it was Bundick's visible discontent despite being surrounded by extreme comfort and wealth. Now, we see our hero singing, dancing, and otherwise hanging out (pun intended) all by his lonesome in nature. He lounges in ferns, stands in a misty field, and is draped over a tree branch like a cheetah's prey, all while playing it completely deadpan. Both videos come courtesy of the Harrys, and make a strong case for Chaz's on-camera inclusion in the next Wes Anderson flick. Until then, you can catch homeboy on the road with appearances from Sinkane, Dog Bite, and Wild Belle. Also peruse the Anything in Return lineup below. (We haven't yet confirmed whether Bundick will declare his "weiner tastes like Pepsi Cola" on track 6.)
