SLANDER going techno? Say it ain’t so! The traditionally trap/melodic bass duo have dropped a surprising hard-hitting techno track, the fourth single from their debut album Thrive out on September 22. When talking about the album and the direction they want it to go, one of the most important things to the duo “was having the space to actually try something new.” “Before Dawn” is a new avenue and honestly the polar opposite from what SLANDER has previously released. Give it a listen below.
“Below Dawn” followers 3 other singles including “Replay” with Dylan Matthew and “Halfway Down” featuring Ashley Drake.
“‘Before Dawn’ is a new transformation and we are extremely excited to share it. In our opinion it is polar opposite to our typical sound and this is why we love it so much. We have been getting great reactions to it during our live sets, and we can’t wait to see where this new path takes us. Let’s enter the dark.. together.” – Slander
