Stream: The-Drum, “Switch”

rsz_contact_drum620

Chicago-based duo The-Drum very clearly owe a lot to Art of Noise’s classic “Moments in Love.” It’s not that everything they do explicitly sounds like that song, it’s just that they’ve absorbed its sense of open space. The-Drum are unafraid to let their tracks breathe and pause. This aesthetic plays out with restraint over the course of their album Contact (out June 25th on Audraglint), but manifests beautifully in “Switch,” which blends new age chimes with synths that are warped and pitched up and down over ghostly hums and whispers.
