Rey Pila’s new single “Drooling” saw the Mexican band once again working with Dave Sitek (producer and member of American rock band, TV On Radio). The futuristic dancehall track arrived next to an interesting animated music video which, according to the band, portrays the profound symbolism of voodoo in connection with the perils of power and fame. “Drooling” is a single from the outfit’s scheduled album Velox Veritas which is due on August 21 via Arts & Crafts.
The song continues their evolution into new a new sonic direction. Starting with a groovy Caribbean beat, it proceeds with addition of a dark and psychedelic synths which set the cue for vocalist Diego to deliver the sinister lyrics.
Despite its off-centre leanings, “Drooling” is quite catchy.
