Video: The-Drum "/SYS"
- Words: Patric Fallon
It's been sometime since we last heard from Chicago production duo The-Drum (about seven months, actually), but the pair has apparently been busy at work on its next record, an EP for Mishka called Sense Net. The first single to leak from that record, "/SYS," was recently treated to a music video courtesy of director Theodore Darst. Darst's gritty and decidedly lo-fi clip utilizes plenty of archaic CGI visuals, an ideal aesthetic when juxtaposed with The-Drum's surreal, R&B-informed production. Look for the rest of the Sense Net EP to drop on July 17.
