With hints of My Bloody Valentine, Beach House & Boards of Canada, LA electro-shoegaze quintet Draag just announced their debut album ‘Dark Fire Heresy’ which will be out April 28.

The first single / cinematic narrative Mitsuwa merges the band’s lush synths & guitars with a cathartic release of religious trauma – more here.

Watch the video for Mitsuwa via YouTube below or listen here.

Draag was born when Adrian Acosta, trained as a mariachi singer by his established norteño musician father, recruited other members from disparate upbringings in the worlds of underground punk, no wave, experimental jazz & classical music training. 

Reviving songs from a karaoke tape deck Acosta recorded at age 10, the band earned a reputation for sonically immersive live shows playing with Wednesday, Reggie Watts & more. You can find out more about their upcoming tour w/ Cryogeyser here.
