Daily Yinz – Drauve – LMK

Pittsburgh dream-pop duo Drauve returns with the rippling slow dance lament “LMK.”

The shimmering, kaleidoscopic textures that characterized Drauve’s 2019 output are still there, but those crystalline guitars and ambling, late-summer-stroll-around-the-neighborhood drums have been mostly replaced by warm synth programming pulled straight from Napoleon Dynamite’s prom playlist. A four-on-the-floor beat, coated in pastel-colored, fog machine keyboard tones, provides a backdrop for singer Victoria Draovitch to lay bare her early-morning insecurities. Her sighing refrain (“You said you’d let me know when you got home last night/I hate the feeling,”) brings to mind the swooning, resigned melancholy of 80’s-inspired groups like Chromatics and Keep Shelly In Athens. Sway under an imaginary disco ball and allow “LMK” to envelop you with its dusky sadness.
