The Vancouver band DRALMS, lead by songwriter Christopher Smith, has released the first single “Shook” off their debut album of the same name and they kept up there solid, beautiful instrumentation since their last release.
The track is one of the best singles of the year so far and the album could go on to be one of the better ones of the year. The simple drums accompanied by the smooth synths and reverb soaked vocals are all in compliment to each other in the perfect way. The lyrics are catchy, but not in bad way and the subtle whisper of some lyrics add a truly wonderful touch to the already entrancing voice of Smith.
Overall, “Shook” is a solid track and we’ll definitely be playing it on repeat over here and you should too.
