Thus far this year, Adult Swim’s Singles Series has given us impressive tracks from DJ Paypal and VHÖL. But the third track in this year’s series is probably the best thus far. This week, they’ve got future-pop auteur Dawn Richard, otherwise known as D?WN, contributing the brief but hypnotic “Serpentine Fire.” The track works as a propulsive, sidelong take on big-room house music, and it’s yet another indication that Richard is operating on some whole other plain. In recent weeks, she’s given us Infared, her EP with producer Kingdom, as well as the excellent track “Wake Up.” After all that, “Serpentine Fire” sounds like a victory lap.
