“Ordinary Pleasure” music video

February 6, 2019 11:03 am

Following the release of Outer Peace, Toro y Moi just shared a new music video for the second single from the album, "Ordinary Pleasure." It takes fans on a tour of Toro's own Company Records studio, introducing fans to the band as they break out into a live performance of the track as Chaz B. dances his way through the space. The track finds Toro's sound at its most jubilant, carried by a funky bassline and conga drum patterns to create a finished product that Highsnobiety called "the most playful sound from the album."

We are elated to share the news that Toro y Moi is back with a new album, Outer Peace, the follow-up to last year’s highly-emotive Boo Boo. The new record sees Chaz Bear, formerly Bundick, continuing to explore his limits sonically and thematically, serving as a homecoming celebration of an album that was written and recorded in the Bay Area after spending a year in Portland surrounded by the solace of nature. Upon returning home, Toro found inspiration for his new album in the stifling environment he came back to. Outer Peace is due out
January 18th, 2019.

Along with the announcement, Toro y Moi shared the album’s first single “Freelance”, an upbeat track infused elements of house and funk. The track’s accompanying visual is directed by Bear’s longtime collaborator Harry Israelson, who was also the creative director behind the album cover for Outer Peace. Watch the video here.

Outer Peace pre-orders are available now on the Carpark shop. Bundle your purchase of an LP or CD with exclusive Toro y Moi socks! Limited LP includes clear vinyl, while the CD comes in a jewel case with a rainbow foil spine tray card. Get them while you can! “Freelance” is also streaming across all services worldwide.

“This record is a response to how disposable culture has become and how it affects creativity. While listening, you might pay attention or ignore — either way that’s ok, this is music for a creative mind.”
— Chaz Bear

“This song is about how patterns can change.”

The Fader just premiered the latest music video from Toro y Moi. “No Show” is taken from Toro’s new record, Boo Boo, available everywhere: Carpark shopiTunesAmazonApple MusicSpotify.

“The mystical karaoke video vibe of ‘Girl Like You’ meets the delicate portraiture of ‘You and I,’ all observed from within what looks like a primitive digital editing platform. It reads as low stakes, but that doesn’t mean it’s not also revealing in some way.” – The Fader
