Drug Couple





Drug Couple bunker down (indoors) on new tracks "No Outside / Alone 2gether"

Droves of New York musicians have sought to create art that makes sense of what’s happening in the city right now, but Brooklyn-based duo Drug Couple have been creating prescient-yet-comforting music since late 2016. Their previous EP Little Hits and the forthcoming Choose Your Own Apocalypse detail the necessity of human intimacy during strange times, with new double B-side No Outside / Alone 2gether continuing in a similar vein. Notably more driven by a percussive groove (“No Outside”) and more prone to darker tones (“Alone 2gether”) than previous efforts, the two songs represent a expansion of Drug Couple’s sound beyond the softer, more downtempo qualities of Little Hits. That said, both tracks hone in on recurring themes of companionship and cautious optimism (or sunny pessimism), embodying the zeitgeist of our increasingly uncertain epoch. Regardless of how you’re quarantining, give it a stream below, and keep an eye out for Drug Couple’s next extended play, out this August.

PREMIERE: Drug Couple "Be In 2" is cheerful end-time music, play the Broadway 11.18

Off-kilter indie connoisseurs Drug Couple lay down a homegrown bop on new single “Be In 2.” A track off the Brooklyn duo’s forthcoming debut EP Little Hits, “Be In 2” finds its pace in the disconcerting give-and-take of modulating, granular synths and an acoustic percussive backbone, occasionally finding space for shimmering guitar riffs and cheerful vocal accents, endowing the final output with a sound somewhere between Animal Collective and Yo La Tengo. This call and response dynamic radiates through the track’s lyrical components as well, with band members Miles and Becca sharing the song’s central melody. Given that Drug Couple’s mythos comes from its two members “falling in love, micro-dosing LSD [together], and considering getting a dog,” it’s clear that the chemistry between its two members isn’t just limited to their joint desire to “find someone special to share the end times with.” Jam it below, and catch them at the Broadway on November 18th for their record release show. -Connor Beckett McInerney, Photo by Ed-Rocha Goncalves
