THEY. are a very difficult-to-Google duo based in LA. If you had to pigeonhole Drew Love and Dante Jones into a genre it’d be R&B, but in the past they’ve teamed with major electronic producers like ZHU and Skrillex, their NFL-supported hit “U-RITE” is extremely brisk trap music, and there’s more than a little indie rock in their sound.
That’s especially true of “What I Know Now,” their new single with Wiz Khalifa, one of several superstar collaborations on their upcoming Fireside EP, which also features Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, Jessie Reyez, Gallant, and Vic Mensa. This one will go down quite smoothly if you enjoy all the pop songs Tame Impala’s been involved with lately, though as far as I know Kevin Parkerdidn’t actually help out here — that is, assuming the sound of Khalifa’s voice doesn’t trigger some deep-seated dread in you.
