The new single from 18+, titled Dry, is pure trap homage, dripping with innuendo and laced together with coded lyrics over a backdrop of gun cocks and pitch-shifted chants. It’s B-Side Body is a woozy call-and-response that unnervingly unites sex and disorientation. Take a listen to ‘Dry’ via Soundcloud below.
The duo will return with some European live dates to bring their unique brand of unsettling R&B on an eight date tour kicking off at London’s Corsica Studios on January 28, 2015.
After signing to Houndstooth last year, 18+ released their debut album ‘Trust’ to critical acclaim. The band, Justin and Samia, have been operating since 2011 and have evolved through several media formats of music, performance and visuals which graphically explore identity, gender, sex and morality.
Dry will be released on a 7″ (limited to 500 copies) and also available digitally. All formats are available to buy here.
