The Canadian indie-dance quartet Vaultry released the single Other Drugs yesterday.
An intriguing four and a twelfth minutes song (available on bandcamp) which straddles to anchors of very different construct.
A burring rock percussion and bass which gives the track impetus and gravitas is topped by a boy-band style vocal with guitar gently sewing the two together. Far from natural audiences of either party recoiling in horror I do posit – give it a few moments on your ear and whichever camp you start from – within the first half a minute or so the contrasts will not seem like an arch nemesis – rather a natural amalgam and by the end likely to be interested to discover more of the catalogue.
