Been fans of the criminally underrated Swedish electronic trio DNKL here since they first sprung the slow burning ‘Hunt‘ on us back in 2013. It’s been two years since they released their debut EP Wolfhour, which included that track and the giant ‘Battles‘, both featuring in our Top 100 tracks in their respective year of release. So its great news to hear they’ve released a brand new single, ‘Draft’, their first for the PIAS’s electronic label Different Recordings. Originally an eight minute instrumental track which became a live staple, the band decided to commit it to tape and began experimenting with vocals and the overall structure. Despite its dark lyrical overtones, its undoubtedly their most up-tempo track yet and boasts an ever so subtle beat change to die for. Listen below.
