“Dumb Paranoia” Dog Trainer

Dog Trainer have shared a new video for “Dumb Paranoia.” The track, is the lead-single of the New York City duo’s forthcoming release Scrolling to feel better… part one. “Dumb Paranoia” grapples with snowballing anxieties that keep us awake at night as gentle acoustic strums build up to ebbing synths. “It was one of the earlier songs we wrote for the album, and was sort of a breakthrough for us in terms of the level of detail we were able to put in the lyrics,” explains the band. “We realized the opportunity we had to share what we were really going through on this release.”

Scrolling to feel better… part one, which was created entirely within the confines of the COVID-19 pandemic, saw the duo create together in an unprecedented way. With Broman working from his NYC apartment and del Calvo working from the basement laundry room of an Airbnb his parents had rented in Vermont, they sent beats back and forth before eventually quarantining together for three months to finish it. On the resulting album, Dog Trainer leap beyond their lo-fi origins to their most honest writing and refined self-production to date.

Broman and del Calvo, who first met as rival student jazz guitarists at the New School for Jazz, here collect their disparate influences (everything from Bon Iver, Beach House, and Porches, to the emotive pop of Lauv, Taylor Swift, Charli XCX, and The 1975).
