The Skinny: LA-based shoegaze rockers Draag recently shared their latest single, “Lavender Hole,” which comes from their new EP, Tracii Lordz. Blah Blah Blah Science says that the track, “churns and rides a nostalgic fuzz rock wave as ethereal vocals call from a distance over the fray.” The new album still has a TBA release date.
Tracii Lordz follows-up the band’s self-titled LP, which was dropped earlier this year. The EP was produced by fellow LA experimental rocker Jeff Byron, formerly of The Mae Shi’s. Draag started in the Fall of 2013 as the solo recording project of Adrian Acosta (guitar, programs, vocals) who would go on to recruit the rest of the band mid-way through the process. With Jessica Huang (guitar, keys, and vocals), Adrian De La Cruz (guitar), Carlos Michel (bass, sampler) and Danny Rossi (drums) in the fold, the quintet create eclectic, ambient dream rock influenced by essential Creation Records artists (My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream, The Jesus And Mary Chain), Aphex Twin and Fugazi.
