bdrmm have released a new song called ‘Standard Tuning’. The track follows the Hull-based shoegaze band’s October single ‘Mud’. Take a listen below.
“’Standard Tuning’ is an important track in the ever-changing development of our creative process, as it was a collaboration between myself and Jordan,” frontman Ryan Smith explained in a statement. “I created the loop using techniques such as stretching samples and chopping them, and Jordan added synthetics and drum processing and structured it into the track you hear now. Lyrically, the words followed the loss of an old childhood friend. Despite the fact of not speaking to somebody for years, you still feel an atmosphere of upset and loss. The passing affected the Hull community in such a way that it was impossible not to be affected by it. The song is about loss and a tribute to old friends.”
bdrmm’s second LP, I Don’t Know, arrived last year.
