Indie-shoegaze quintet out of Los Angeles Draag shared a mesmerizing single & video for Trauma Kit, which is lifted from their ‘Clara Luz’ EP. The EP was co-produced by Jon Nuñez of Torche, the project 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.” Watch the video clip for Trauma Kit via YouTube below.
Los Angeles Shows

2/17 @ Echoplex w/ Dustin Wong & Brin, Night Dreamer, Soft Blue Shimmer

With flavours of Sonic Youth, Boards of Canada and My Bloody Valentine blended together, Draag has played shows with the likes of Reggie Watts, Part Time, Vinyl Williams, Goon, Young Jesus, Girl Friday and beyond. What began as a solo project turned into much more when Adrian Acosta, trained as a mariachi singer by his established norteño musician father, 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. Having been tested by illness and personal turmoils throughout recording, this new EP is about processing trauma, how it can be terrifying & isolating but also incredibly empowering.
