[NO LONGER FREE] Red Giant - Drones [Trip Hop/Experimental]

Into the atmosphere...

Why, hello. Where did you come from? More importantly, why didn't you arrive sooner? Red Giant, whoever they are, take the traditional roots of trip-hop and drop it on a downtempo, post-dubstep-esque base and then give us a beautifully haunting female vocalist who gives each track incredibly eerie atmospheres and personalities. Needless to say, this is probably one of the best EP's to be released in 2015. 

The tracks of this EP have plenty of life to them, with incredibly intriguing skittery beats blending in with atmospheric synths, punching drums and kicks, and unsettling vocal samples that give the album a dark and mysterious feeling that is only further exemplified by the group's vocalists. Who's mixture of soft spoken and sung lyrics with dark and poetic themes play with one another to create a chemistry that is completely unexpected from a fresh new group. This doesn't even mention the two featured vocalists, who bring their own special tricks to the table.

I don't know where Red Giant came from, but if Drones is a sneak peak of what is to come with this duo then these guys are someone that need to be on your radar. You can steam, download, or buy Drones here. If you like what you hear, consider supporting Red Giant by throwing a few coins in their way. You can also share this EP with your friends, they remember what trip-hop is, right? Just remember, a little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! <3
