The Dawn Drapes are overwhelmed but longing for love on their new single “Oxygen”
Last month, local psychedelic rock duo The Dawn Drapes released a new single and video called “Facts,” their first output of 2020. Today, WXPN is proud to premiere their second single of the year, “Oxygen.”
“Oxygen” is an indie tune anchored around the tight vocal harmonies of singers Daniel Rice and Michael Sanzo. The beat is deceptively driving, in spite of dour lyrics and muddled chords, and a fuzzy guitar solo encapsulates the stifled feeling of the band as they sing about a pervasive state of inundation.
The band says of the new song:
“‘Oxygen’ is the second of a series of singles from our Headroom studio sessions. This song is about the feeling of the day to day just being overwhelming and it being hard to get excited about anything and literally driving yourself off the edge. It’s hopeless lyrics with an upbeat longing for love overall. There’s struggle and acceptance in this song.”
