Los Angeles-based alt-shoegaze outfit Draag have always displayed their eclectic approach towards their recorded output, most recently exampled on their most recent EP, Traci Lordz. While lead single “Lavender Hole” worked as a standalone triumph within their most consistently applied genre tag, the rest of the EP, track by track, showed the relatively new band’s knack for diversity.
Bandleader Adrian Acosta explains, “When I started the band, I really had no idea the kind of band I was putting together. I just knew who I wanted on my team. We all have an appreciation for music of all realms, we hate the idea of not being able to write a drum n’ bass song if we want to (for example).”
The most left-of-center singular output off of Traci Lordz is the eerie dead-disco of “Hell”. Groundsounds now has the exclusive premiere of the track’s accompanying music video which continues the unsettling aesthetic making use of stock footage from 90’s arena concerts.
