Dralms is the latest project by Christopher Smith, featuring long time collaborators Shaunn Thomas Watt (Siskiyou), Will Kendrick (Failing) and Peter Carruthers (Siskiyou).  With Dralms, Smith departs from his minimal and subdued musical constructions of his solo albums to a much more complex, heavier sound. Also contributing to the Dralms’ sound is producer and electronic artist Andy Dixon (Secret Mommy, Caving), with whom Smith had previously trusted with a remix of Earning Keep’s Pillars and Pyre. The extra clicks, echo and ambiance layered onto the songs by the producer came late in the game, after being recorded by John Raham of Vancouver’s Afterlife Studios, where the band is currently working on their debut full-length.
