Fresh off earning reader approval for late May’s official remix of XXX, Dillan Ponders bounces back with another fresh single off his latest digital full-length. Fans won’t be surprised to discover that DROWN is an ominous, atmospheric chronicle of substance abuse, but the cut’s sinuous sound stands in contrast to past releases’ more abrasive grooves. Tay Lewis does his thing behind the boards, backing the artist’s coke and weed-fueled bars with an eerie mix of reversed synths and dissonant strings. Rajeevan Nithiyananthan‘s official visuals round out the package. Released late last year, Ponders’s Numb LP is available now for free download via Bandcamp.
