The Dodos have shared a brand new song, “The Atlantic.” The standalone single is out today via Polyvinyl. It follows “The Surface,” another new song the band shared back in March. Listen below, followed by the single’s cover art and the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Singer/guitarist Meric Long had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘The Atlantic’ is a song about the limitations of what you can see if you don’t surround yourself with people that challenge you. In the first couple years of knowing my partner, the Atlantic ocean was literally between us, and now when we disagree and see things very differently it can feel like that ocean still exists metaphorically. It’s meant as a love letter, but one that honors our differences because seeing through each other’s facade was what brought us together.”

The Dodos released a new album, Certainty Waves, last year via Polyvinyl. The band also features percussionist Logan Kroeber.

The Dodos North American Tour Dates:

10/09 - Boston, MA @ Brighton Music Hall %
10/10 - Philadelphia, PA @ Johnny Brenda’s %
10/11 - Washington, DC @ City Winery DC %
10/12 - Brooklyn, NY @ Elsewhere (Frenchkiss Records’ 20th Anniversary)

The message behind the lyrics really adds another layer for me. It’s always so satisfying to find a song that not only sounds good but also talks about something you can relate to.
