Dralms unveils a debut full-length album, Shook, which releases globally on October 2, 2015 via Boompa Records/Fontana North (North America) and Full Time Hobby (Europe.)
Dralms is Christopher Smith’s latest project, which, over the past year, released two celebrated EPs; Crushed Pleats and Pillars & Pyre. While those exquisitely rendered and emotionally bold EP’s were perhaps gentle threats of future Dralms offerings, today’s towering first single (also titled ‘Shook’) lends more clues.
The sound of Dralms has a gravitational pull much like Vancouver, Canada, where singer Christopher Smith resides. When trying to describe musical similarities, reviewers have looked in the directions of Talk Talk, Radiohead, The Antlers, Pink Floyd and Spiritualized, but those references only hint at Dralms’ indeterminable qualities. Clash described Dralms’ music as “a contagious, thrilling fare with a unique melodic sense.”
