Today, Brooklyn-based indie rock duo Drug Couple announce their debut EP Little Hits, sharing lead single “Hissy Fit.” Yesterday, The 405 premiered the track, praising, “The song captures this through the lens of hazy, mid-tempo scuzzy rock, complete with surf-style percussion (toms, shakers, etc.) and guitars drenched in reverb and chorus effects. The symbiotic relationship between the engaging instrumentation/production and the thoughtful approach to familiar lyrical subject matter allows Drug Couple to step outside the box with its own unique sound.” Drug Couple has also announced their EP release show at The Broadway on 11/18. Little Hits EP is out 11/15 via PaperCup Music.
Drug Couple is a musical duo comprised of Miles and Becca. The pair met in November 2015, when Miles produced a record for Becca’s previous band at The CRC: the Brooklyn studio where he has recorded artists like Chairlift, MGMT, Public Access Television, Buscabulla, Kelsey Lu and more.
They fell in love in with making music together. They also fell in love. Since then, they’ve been microdosing LSD, considering getting a dog, and recording a collection of songs about finding someone special to share the end times with.
Drug Couple’s music attempts to showcase a dialogue between genders—as opposed to the one-sided soliloquies that define so much of popular music. Their influences include Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr., and the musical partnership of Mutt Lange and Shania Twain.
Drug Couple’s writing process is different for every song, but the throughline is a spirit of deep collaboration. They wrote Little Hits at home in Brooklyn, and on trips to Vermont and California. The pair recorded the EP at the The CRC, where they first met.
Little Hits features Miles on vocals, guitar, keyboard, percussion, and production; Becca on vocals, bass and keyboard; and Pastor Greg on drums and percussion. Will Berman played drums on U Made A Sound. It was mastered by Heba Kadry, and produced, engineered, and mixed by Miles.
