Montreal-based dream-pop group Bodywash have shared the video for their new track, “With Heat,” off of their forthcoming album Comforter, due out August 30 via Luminelle Recordings. We have the premiere. The video is a gauzy fever dream set in a suburban home that features VHS fuzz and slow zooms to match the tone of the song. The track itself is a gently surging wave set over a steady groove that layers like sediment in a downpour. Check out the video below.

On the making of the track, vocalist and guitarist Rosie Long Decter had this to say: “The song comes from a feeling of being trapped - of returning to something you know is bad for you, whether that thing is a relationship or a place or a feeling (for me, it was all three). It gets at the tension between giving into a toxic situation and trying to forgive yourself for it, while still hoping for a way out. With the video, we wanted to convey that tension - to create a sense of claustrophobia, of being enveloped and haunted by something that you can’t quite articulate. A woman moves through a house, touching the walls, exploring, looking for something; she might not ever find it, but she keeps looking.”

The video was directed by Max Taeuschel and stars Isabelle Buchegger. Comforter marks the group’s debut LP, following previously released lead single “Reverie” and standalone single “Eye to Eye” released earlier this year.
