Dan Deacon is all for embracing his fans, whether by conducting a synchronized dance circle or creating an immersive free smartphone app. Now he’s found a new way to connect on the web by becoming the most prolific artist to post on Vine, the video-sharing service launched earlier this month and hosted on Twitter.
The self-professed “enemy of corporate capitalism” isn’t one to withhold his opinions — just put last year’s electro-cruncher America on rotation — and his Vine posts only add to his allure as an avant-garde artist. Through a kaleidoscopic lens, we’re treated to Deacon unplugged: up in the club, soaking the strobe lights, streaked with glitter and sweat. We’re assuming that we’re only months away from an artist making a new album announcement via a Vine, but until then, we’ll relish the pure form of the medium with these five glimpses into Deacon’s world.
