Brighton electronic trio DrDr are back with a four track EP on Glyph Recordings. Struggling is the follow-up to Take It Lying Down released last year and clearly shows that the group has evolved to a much more mature sound.
This is best expressed in the seemingly meticulously care they’ve put into the title track. First, there’s Donna Curson’s emotional delivery finely articulated with that cowbell-like synth in their customary deep house setting. As the song appears to draw to an end – with the same loop that’s heard in the beginning – it unpredictably shifts to a short dubstep-like cut, before that addictive chorus is dropped one last time.
