SLANDER, is that you?

The barnstorming bass music duo have taken an unexpected dip into techno, keeping fans on their toes before the forthcoming release of their long-awaited debut album, Thrive

SLANDER's new single, "Before Dawn," speaks to the still moments of darkness before light creeps in. From the moment the track begins, listeners are taken down an eerie and unfamiliar soundscape fitted with industrial kick drums and a ferocious bassline.

SLANDER have no remorse as the arrangement relentlessly chugs forward before making way for an entrancing break. Here, soothing piano chords percolate through the mix in dreamlike fashion, instilling the sense of serenity that embodies darkness before it's transmuted into light. And just like the earth's diurnal cycles, dusk eventually sets in as SLANDER bring back the menacing techno drop.

Take a listen to "Before Dawn" below and find the single on streaming platforms here.
