Dub meets somber indie rock on this murky new track by the Vancouver band.
The brainchild of Vancouver singer-songwriter Christopher Smith, four-piece band Dralms follows Smith's first two solo releases by offering more depth, richness, and in a nice little twist, considerably more darkness. Case in point, the brooding track "Shook", which has been given a brilliant remix by indie duo Peaking Lights, who give it a strong dub sound, whose Blur-like groove is irresistible.
"['Shook'] explains what I was going through making the album," Smith says. "There’s a lot about power and control on the record, and I’m shaking out of that struggle, both in terms of forming a band and surrendering total control, and also romantically, as an individual, looking at relationships and which side you want to be on."
Dralms' debut album Shook will be released 2 October on Boompa Records.
