New The-Drum – “Sirens”
Since their inception, Chicago duo The-Drum have been rather unfairly grouped under the “cloud” microgenre, which seems to be applied to any remotely internet savvy act. Since catching our eye with their contribution to Haleek Maul’s Oxyconteen EP, Brandon and Jeremiah have helmed R&B mega-group JODY and honed their original and remix work into a viscous blend of codeine drenched homemade percussion and contemporary R&B inferred melodies. On June 25, the duo will release their debut LP, Contact, on Portland-based label Audraglint, which we can attest will not only allow them to transcend the limiting “cloud” label, but will also entrench them in a long line of internet bred experimental R&B producers. Stream Contact‘s first single below and mark off June 25 on your calendars.
