There’s room for both reflection and abandon on “Evaporated”, the second track from Portland trio Hustle and Drone’s forthcoming HOLYLAND. Restrained verses open up space, while falsetto vocals effervesce over funk rhythms and chock-a-block sound effect coloring on the chorus.
“‘Evaporated’ has always been a personal favorite of mine,” keyboardist Ryan Neighbors, previously of Portugal.The Man explains of the track, which would fit in seamlessly in the mix with Chromeo and Holy Ghost! for your next dance party. “We rarely go straight dance, 4 on the floor, and sometimes it is just a really great feeling. This song took many different shapes and structures before finally finding it’s place on HOLYLAND. We always knew it would be there, but we didn’t know how it would sound.”
HOLYLAND will be released on September 2nd via Red Bull Sound Select.
