Dralms – Shook



Dralms (a reinvention by Christopher Smith) has a knack of spawning brilliant videos to accompany its music.

Chris has directed video for Dralms’s new track, ‘Shook’. He says of the track, “Shook is that moment when everything changes. Where you hold on to what’s true to you for dear life, or let it all crumble, accept it, pick up the pieces and move on”.

The video is simple and allows the music speak for itself. It has just three features; Chris, a set of flowers, and a lover asleep in bed.

‘Shook’ has been taken from the new album of the same name, which is out on 2 October via Full Time Hobby (UK) / Boompa (North America).

Indietronica Interviews Gold & Youth, Troumaca, and Mt. Wolf

Indietronica has recently been following around some of their favourite up-and-coming artists with a camera and mic, asking them questions about themselves, their sounds, and their influences.

Gold & Youth


We met up with Canadians Gold & Youth in a beautiful rainy park in Oxford, ahead of their live performance at Gathering Festival at which they played to a mesmerised crowd enjoying the 80s-tinged synth pop with soaring melodies and ethereal vocals.

Gold & Youth have just released their album ‘Beyond Wilderness’ in the UK and Europe, available for purchase here, or stream here.

Troumaca chatted to us in a corridor of the unique London venue Elektrowerkz just before their headline show there. They talked about their new single ‘The Grace’, how the video was made, as well as their total love for Prince.

The Birmingham lads release the storming tropical-infused indietronica single ‘The Grace’ on 11th November 2013, which is the title track of their new album, available to purchase here. Troumaca are signed to Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label.

Mt. Wolf


South Londoners Mt. Wolf also played Gathering Festival. We caught their epic live performance, which
filled a stunning church with huge, ethereal soundscapes, complimented by luscious vocals from front-woman Kate. The light was pouring through giant stained-glass windows during their early evening set, and we interviewed the foursome in the side passage of the church.

The band have just released single ‘Midnight Shallows’, with an accompanying beautiful science and nature themed video which you can watch on Youtube here, and purchase here.
