Draag – “Orb Weaver”

Draag – “Orb Weaver”

Last year, Draag released Dark Fire Heresy, a hypnotic whirlwind of an album. Today, the Los Angeles shoegaze crew is announcing a new EP called Actually, the quiet is nice. The lead single “Orb Weaver” is out now.

“Jess and I go on night walks in our neighborhood often, probably because there’s no one around and we are obsessed with the eerie nostalgic quality of empty neighborhoods,” Adrian Acosta explained in a statement. “One summer, it was very hard to walk without running into a big orb weaver web. I have a severe fear of spiders. I used the night walks as a form of therapy but it got me in a fearful state instead and dwelling on dark thoughts.”

The group has fittingly signed to Julia’s War, the label run by They Are Gutting A Body Of Water. They’re also getting ready to support Wednesday on a tour. Hear “Orb Weaver” below.
