First Listen

Drifter "None Else"

"None Else" is a creative little bit of production from Helsinki-based newcomer Drifter, whose gloomy and emotive "Please Stay" you may remember from a couple years back. Combining a few lounge-friendly elements and a self-proclaimed affinity for "late '60s psychedelic rock," this fresh track from the rising artist manages to fit a number of unexpected sounds—distorted guitar, jazzy vibraphones, and Hammond organ—into a sleek and well-crafted package. A touch of pattering beats and some nicely reworked vocals help seal the deal, making this an intriguing taste of what's to come when Drifter drops his debut album, Not Far Now, later this year.
