Russ Chimes - DRIFT (FEAT. IRIS GOLD)
UNO-011 Released 13th January 2017
Release format: Digital only
Four minutes of flawless production and vocal ability, ‘Drift’ is a huge statement of intent from Russ going in to a New Year. With nods to the likes of Massive Attack and Portishead the record carries an eery, ominous tone that arrests the listener from the word go. With pounding drums and immaculate sound-design, Russ sets the perfect backdrop to Iris Gold’s poetic topline. She sings of a constant battle with herself and another that stirs an instant emotive response. Memorable lines such as ‘shoulders holding boulders’ and the repetition of ‘stay down, stay down’ ring in your ear after compulsive repeat listening. ‘Drift’ is a master class in how to captivate your audience.
