Indie synth-pop project Tee Dee Dees has just released his new single ‘Slim Bears’ via Alaska Music. It follows the release of ‘War’ which premiered via CLASH Magazine and is taken from his upcoming album, 1^2=1, produced by Ben Shopen and scheduled for release in 2022.
Alongside his role as a musician, Ori Mark is also a journalist and editor of Haaretz magazine. The 37-year-old is based in Tel-Aviv and cites the likes of Django Django and MGMT as influences.
With its fuzzy distortions and rolling bassline ‘Slim Bears’ is an incisive philosophical reflection on alienation and perhaps even the swelling meaninglessness of modern existence, as based on Tee Dee Dee’s longing to live in the desert on the margins of society.
He explains further: “I have all kinds of non-realistic dreams, like starting a community in the desert – a lot of music, some sixties atmosphere, some Buddhism, I don’t know. Stupid dreams. In the end, I find it hard to keep close relationships even with my loved ones. I guess this song suggests to make some efforts and keep your circle close before choosing to be alone”.
‘Slim Bears’ features on the Spotify playlist INDIE_GROUND.fm
