ANNOUNCE // Destroyer Announces “My Mystery” 12-inch + Remix by DJ firstname.lastname@example.org, Extensive European + Asian TourPosted by Andrew on March 31st, 2016
Says Bejar: “We recorded a song called “My Mystery” a year and a half ago. Kind of a light number, vaguely danceable. Wistful, looking back not unfondly on time spent and dull misadventures had within the dead-as-a-doornail music industry. And the feeling of where it leaves you, like a rat in the middle of the ocean, though not as harsh as that; as if rats could swim an ocean’s length.
Then one day DJ email@example.com called me up and said, “You got any shit for me?”…
So here it is, the video that features the remix by DJ firstname.lastname@example.org (who also plays in the live band and has remixed Destroyer on prior singles). Shot in Mexico City, by Nicloas Bragg, the director says, “‘An ideal city must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery…’ -Luis Barragan. Night falls on CDMX and Destroyer dreams of chasing architects along the oval horse track surrounding Parque Mexico. Old dogs, old men and old Bejar stray into the mesh of fountains, facades and blood orange flumes. “My Mystery” captures our last hours in Mexico City. Taco stands and mezcal bars point the way — all while people keep death in their wine-sloshed eyes. “
Destroyer will be playing their debut shows in Asia this April in China, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand and will be back in Europe for more dates this coming June. All dates are listed below!
