Over the past few years, Dutch duo DROELOE has become one of our favorite up-and-coming acts in electronic music. From their incredible debut EP to their collabs with Taska Black, San Holo and more, the two continue to grow an evolve their music in the most interesting ways. Today, the duo has added to their continuously expanding discography with the release of a brand new single, “Looking Back”.
Apparently this latest offering came about when Vincent of DROELOE was in LA and met another artist in the Trap Nation creative house. The two recorded a low quality demo of “Looking Back” which prompted Vincent to return to the track and lay down his own vocals.
“When I started doing it, I thought ‘yo this could actually be something’ and that’s how this came about. I found out that I really enjoy singing now, so that was nice. Conceptually this track is like reminiscing over the whole roller coaster ride that has been the past year and mostly appreciating the people that helped you get through it and the hard times. The people who you are happy are part of your life.” – Vincent of DROELOE
While we heard a preview of “Looking Back” when DROELOE took over bitbird radio a few week back, the final version is sounding incredibly fresh. Characterized by distant, plucked melodies, skittering percussion, powerful, pulsing bass and Vincent’s emotional vocals, this latest from the duo comes as the first release off their upcoming second EP. Check out “Looking Back” below and make sure to keep an eye out for DROELOE’s new EP The Choices We Face, out on on August 7th. Enjoy!
