Three years after Individ, San Francisco-based band The Dodos (guitarist Meric Long and percussionist Logan Kroeber) released the new album Certainty Waves in 2018. Now they are back with a new, delicate single titled “The Atlantic” which is out now via Polyvinyl. Explaining the meaning behind their latest single, singer and guitarist Meric Long shared –

The Atlantic is a song about the limitations of what you can see if you don’t surround yourself with people that challenge you. In the first couple years of knowing my partner, the Atlantic ocean was literally between us, and now when we disagree and see things very differently it can feel like that ocean still exists metaphorically.“”It’s meant as a love letter, but one that honors our differences because seeing through each other’s facade was what brought us together.
