Destroyer Shares “June” 

Destroyer continues the lead-up to their new album LABYRINTHITIS (Merge Records), out March 25th, with a new single and video, “June,” directed by David Galloway and Destroyer’s Dan Bejar. Carved from the subterranean burls of funk bass, warped synth-pop, and nocturnal disco anomalies and written with long-term collaborator John Collins from opposing states of isolation, “June” joins previous singles “Tintoretto, It’s for You” and “Eat the Wine, Drink the Bread” as the sprawling touchstones of LABYRINTHITIS.

“On a roll” is an apt description for “June,” which shows the journey of a humble burrito to Dan Bejar’s doorstep. Rolled together by cooks and then rolled to its destination via a Segway-riding, Tron-dressed Door Dasher, it goes through all the steps we expect but never really consider. Up close, the details shimmer and depict the beauties present, yet often overlooked, in day-to-day life. 

David Galloway on the song: “Is it spring where you are? I think June is technically summer, but that’s not the point I’m trying to make. The flowers are starting to come out now, and the birds sure as hell are. There it was; the future just flew by. What’s the quorum on something like that?”
