All The People \\ ‘Drum’ Track Premiere
All The People reveal Drum, the opening track from their highly-anticipated debut album R-TOGETHER.
Tickled drum pads, metallic crashes and velcro beats cross paths beneath gong-like synths. Lead vocalist Curtis Dennie delivers melodies that encourage trance-like meditation. Layered up, Drum is an alluring window to South London’s alternative electronica scene. All The People‘s debut album R-TOGETHER is out in May on 100 Billion Wires.
Drum is a delicious taster of the album to come, which celebrates chunky electronic hooks; a grungier offering than their previous single Don’t Think.
Of Drum, All The People‘s Ash says;
“Drum is quite an unhinged track. The instrumental came together really quickly with me and my brother Si clicking on the vibe straight away. It stems from our mum telling us when we we’re younger not to take shit from anyone. I’ve written the song as a metaphor from my perspective and used an acronym R.E.A. which is like a private mantra. There’s a nice blend of live over electronic drums and lots of craziness from the Arturia mini brute”.
The three piece have garnered attention from some of the UK’s most prestigious tastemakers, with the BBC at the forefront. Those championing All The People include Tom Ravenscroft, John Kennedy, Pete Tong and Tom Robinson.
Watch out for R-TOGETHER dropping on 5 May via 100 Billion Wires.
