15+ Date Headlining Fall North American Tour to Kick Off in San Francisco on Sept 27th


(New York, NY): Slinky alt-pop duo slenderbodies, made up of Max Vehuni and Benji Cormack, release "arrival." The latest single off their forthcoming debut 'Komorebi' (September 20th // Avant Garden Records), the playful mellow cut sees the guys in top form, creating a surrealist indie pop soundscape that's as seductive as it is hypnotizing. Over handclaps, an electric guitar loop, and breathy vocals, slenderbodies take listeners by the hand into a dream.


Listen via Consequence of Sound:


The accompanying video, directed by Savannah Setten from Pulse Films, takes place in a Ukranian prison and follows the lives of the inmates, a subtle political message of solidarity masqueraded by pleasing visuals. Shot on film, following the lives of these prisoners with the song playing over their cigarette breaks and paroles imbues "arrival" with another meaning entirely.


Watch the high concept video for "arrival" here:


slenderbodies have toured with Milky Chance, Mura Masa, Passion Pit, and PVRIS and made their Lollapalooza debut this year. The duo produce, write, and play guitar on all their songs—melding the three skills into genre-blurring, emotionally impactful experiences unlike any other, striving to create moods & worlds through highly eclectic, surreal indie pop. Their breakout track "anemone" has garnered over 30M+ streams across all platforms.
