Los Angeles-based indie-shoegaze quintet Draag have just announced their ‘Clara Luz‘ EP. Now, they’re sharing the first dreamy track and video lifted from the EP titled Ghost Leak.

Jessica Huang from the band describes the track: “Ghost Leak is the feeling of being completely invisible and inconsequential. It is also a message to someone we lost — to let them know they weren’t invisible.” Watch the video clip via YouTube below.

Co-produced by Jon Nuñez of Torche, the ‘Clara Luz’ EP will be released on February 21, following 2018’s ‘Nontoxic Process’ EP praised by the likes of Noisey for its “murky grunge-gaze compositions and gut-twisting songwriting.”

With flavours of Sonic Youth, Boards of Canada and My Bloody Valentine put into a musical blender, Draag began as a solo project of Adrian Acosta, trained as a mariachi singer by his established norteño musician father. He recruited other members – Jessica Huang, Nick Kelley, Ray Montes and Shane Graham – from disparate upbringings in the worlds of underground punk, no wave, experimental jazz, and classical music training. The project has been tested by illness and personal turmoils – this new EP is about processing trauma, how it can be terrifying & isolating but also incredibly empowering.

Having played shows with Reggie Watts, Part Time, Vinyl Williams, Goon, Young Jesus, Girl Friday and more, Draag also has an upcoming residency at The Echo in February.
