MP3/Video: White Denim – “Drug”
Texan rockers, White Denim, burst into the mainstream conciousness in a shrieking ball of flames with 2009′s explosive, ‘Fits’. It may have been their third album, but it truly marked the arrival of a force to be reckoned with. Hell, even the often-hard-to-impress folks at Gorilla vs. Bear have awarded these guys four consecutive “Best Rock Band” titles at SXSW. Now THAT’s a freakin’ rock band.
But they’re a helluva lot more as well. In fact, on their new album ‘D’ – out 27th May on Downtown – the group seem resolute on expanding their sound; throwing more country and southern rock into the giant Texas chilli pot.
Their new mp3, “Drug”, is case in point. Slower and more intoxicating than anything they’ve released before, the song summons up colvulsing guitar riffs and psychedelic percussion from the dry desert terrain.
