Pittsburgh synth-soaked indie rockers, Dinosoul, have released the video to their single “Let Me Go”. The visual is shot in collaboration with a host of Steel City creatives, with direction from Stephanie Trainer, editing by Karl Nykwest, and featuring local dancers Sara Simmons, Cameron Boyd, Javier Marchan.
“Let Me Go” is visceral example of Dinosouls mantra,“Pain is medicine, pleasure is disease.” Vocalist/guitarist Donny Donovan describes the track as “borderline manic… our chorus screams ‘you won’t let me go’ while the bridge begs ‘don’t let, let me go.” Vocalist/keys player Carolyn Hilliard explains, “the song is an evolutionary experience. Everything from the members of our band, to our sound, to the structure, and even the meaning of this song has changed since initially bringing it into this world. It’s morphed multiple times alongside our experiences before finally being released as a single.”
Dinosoul also elaborate on the videos inspiration; “We think this song is so emotionally charged that it ultimately screamed for simplicity during times of angst, distress and uncertainty which yielded the final product. It allowed for the dancers to share their own storyline and invites and allows the viewer/listener to ultimately create their own storyline too.”
“Let Me Go” follows Dinosoul’s 2018 full-length debut album release of Eleven, which featured the moody call for help “4 AM” and the vital indiepunk of “Garbage Truck”, alongside nine other cuts, including a reworking of the title track from their 2016 DimensionEP.
Fans can look forward to a series of single releases through the remainder of 2019, beginning with the release of “Sorrow” in the coming weeks.
