Dancing with the drained thought of personal vocation, Drauve’s latest release, “SO LOW,” follows a troubled stream of consciousness, leaping with the highs and diving into its lows. It lives in the season of existential dread and anxiety about the future, never quite knowing what move will decide everything or nothing. Contemplative yet cornered, the mind unravels into a state of life analysis; dissecting every yes, no, and the perpetual unknowns.
Drauve, the dream pop duo from Pittsburgh, initially threw the demo of the song away, not wanting to finish or release it. Revisiting the lyrics and production, the song now enters a domain of fresh energy. The duo explains, “The song saw three different bedroom studios and epitomized a major turning point in our lives and careers.” Vitalized by flawless vocals, “SO LOW” feels cool and experimental, all while confronting the complexities of life choices.
