Premiere: Watch a Hypnotic Video from New Duo Droves
Sarah Friedland directed the experimental dance film for Droves' 'Swimminghole.'
Droves is a fresh, Berlin-based duo who make experimental, tripped-out pop. Not much is known of the duo; the two members Erik Kennedy and Will Peterson moved to Berlin from Brooklyn, NY, and their first EP, North River, was recorded in Novia Scotia and made almost entirely from found sound recorded in the area.
The first single from the EP is “Swimminghole,” a murky piece of melancholic pop. Droves teamed up with Brooklyn-based filmmaker and choreographer Sarah Friedland to create the track’s stunning visuals. Like the track itself, the visuals paint a beautifully poignant picture with the human form at its center.
