Crushed Pleats is the debut single of Vancouver-based Dralms. Building his solo output into a full band, lead songwriter Christopher Smith conjures some ethereal spookgaze that utilises guitars and electronic textures to provide a thick backdrop for his soft breathy voice (which sounds a lot like Caribou mainman Dan Snaith). Fans of chilled psychedelia and shoegaze will be right at home here.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 18 September 2014

"It's on at the wrong speed!" cried Li'l Biz and seeing as though we'd managed to put Aphex Twin on at the wrong speed I wouldn't be surprised. It's not on at the wrong speed though, its just a slow and sultry slice of widescreen chilled out shoe-gazy rock. Very cinematic with breathy vocals, slow churning bass tones and a squiggly synth solo. Like the soundtrack to a dream where you die at the end. The flip is very similar, slow building tense brooding structural rock music that sounds a little like War on Drugs . Eerie stuff.
