PREMIERE | Subculture Shares Nostalgic Psych-Rock Inspired Single “HYDRO”


Here at TSIS, we love being kept on our toes when it comes to new music. Our latest find goes by the name Subculture. He’s an upcoming producer out of London who combines psych-rock, jazz, and indie into his own genre-fluid sound. Today, we’re thrilled to be welcoming him to the site with an exclusive premiere of his newest track “HYDRO.”

The track is a perfect representation of Subculture’s unique sound, combining elements of psych-rock into a nostalgic and hazy affair. “HYDRO” features long-time collaborator Chelou on the track and finds the pair navigating a frenzy of live drums, sirens, guitars, and chopped samples.

Here’s what Subculture had to say about the track:

“With the intention of going deeper into the music of my adolescence, HYDRO was the first of what was to become of my latest EP and a re-exploration of the psych, alternative, indie and punk music that shaped my youth. Playing in bands as a younger person and always unable to capture the energy of our live shows in our recordings, we obsessed over the idea of working with a music producer. Years on I find myself at a turning point in genre culture and beginning to re-explore the imperfections and nuances of these genres, approaching rock music like a Hip Hop producer. My good friend Chelou shared his own version of this nostalgia when I invited him on the track and did an amazing job of helping me capture that cross-section we both felt.”

Subculture’s upcoming Mauve Rain EP is scheduled for release on September 22nd. For now, you can check out the exclusive stream of “HYDRO” below. Enjoy!
