“Microgravity Track” By Draag

Draag have shared “Microgravity tank,” the track is off their EP Actually, the quiet is nice.  Songwriter Adrian Acosta shares “I used to live in a house that had this very unusual energy. It’s the kind of energy I could only connect to that specific house. It was quite haunting. Every few months or so, I’ll have a Deja vu moment that brings me back to that house. When it fades, all I can think about is how my better years are behind me.”

Actually, the quiet is nice follows the Los Angeles bands 2023 debut Dark Fire Heresy, and marks their first release on the Philadelphia label Julia’s War (Glixen). The band kick off their tour with Wednesday on May 14th in Sant Fe, NM.

Draag began when Adrian Acosta (songwriter, vocalist, guitarist) revived songs he recorded on his karaoke tape deck when he was 10 years old. Growing up in the northeast San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, there was nothing for kids to do. Adrian was deeply involved in the DIY punk scene there as a preteen; Backyard shows happened every weekend by word of mouth and through flyers at school, with some shows ending in drive-by shootings from rival gangs. As a kid, Acosta purposely used warped tapes and dissonant sounds without understanding what he loved about it, but upon discovering artists such as My Bloody Valentine, Boards of Canada, and Throbbing Gristle, he realized he wasn’t the only one.

After meeting Ray Montes (guitar), Nick Kelley (bass), and Eric Fabbro (drums), through many years in LA’s music community, Draag began to coalesce as the full realization of what Acosta had always dreamt of creating, connecting with like minded artists who were also deeply involved in the local scene. Jessica Huang (synth, vocals) joined the band after replying to an ad they’d posted on Craigslist, and the lineup was complete.
