If you were to base first impressions on his charm and well-kept looks, you might expect Dru Chen to peddle the K-Pop sounds of Seoul.
Conversely, from hearing the first few notes that leap from his throat, you’ll discover the spirited magnetism of a Memphis soul performer from the ’60s. An indie-funk fusion that takes the listener on a top-down drive through feel-good effervescence, bluesy toe-tappers, and quiet contemplation, Dru’s music is a marriage of two worlds: the brand of indie/folk pop championed by singer-songwriters, and the deep roots of funk and soul that stem from rhythm and blues.
Dru’s fondness for the old-time aesthetic is apparent. Mirror Work favors the organic warmth of analog mixing, where it was mixed to analog tape to unlock the distinctive blast-from-the-past aesthetic. As a homage to the golden era of music, Dru has also made a limited vinyl pressing of Mirror Work, available at Analog Vault, White Label Records, Choice Cuts, RetroCrates and HEAR Records in Singapore.
On July 19th, Dru returns with a live rendition of two choice cuts taken from Mirror Work and an old favourite. Recorded live at the album launch show, this EP captures Dru at his most vulnerable best. Be it the hushed emotional beauty of "The Space Between Us", the funky romper "I Only Get It From You" and the rousing 2012 debut single, "You Bring Out The Best In Me." Definitely a live release that sets Dru Chen apart from his peers.
