Electro-space-pop duo Def Rain formed in 2011, fusing together the the musical talents of Ashley Cromeens (singer/songwriter) and DJ Abe Lincoln and quickly becoming a staple of the North Texas music scene. Their live performance has been captivating audiences, including the lead singer of The Flaming Lips, Wayne Coyne, due to the fog-wrapped, laser-filled vibe that highlights their funky sound.
The duo have individually working in music for some time, trying their hand with a few bands and sounds that were not a perfect fit, finally finding their signature sound when they came together. Today, they are premiering a brand new track, "Leads", off their debut album.
"Leads" takes you back to a 1980s school dance, snapping and bogeying like Sixteen Candles all over again. The song features a synthed guitar with a mellow beat and pop vocals. Def Rain merges together a funky spacey sound, hence the "space" in electro-space-pop that is undeniable upon hearing their music. Get into this awesome duo, as we expect to see great things from them going forward.
Def Rain is putting out their first album, debuting their funky electro sound with 11 tracks that highlight their laid-back vibes and banging beats. The self-titled debut album will be released on Dallas based record label, Pour Le Coups, on February 25. Pre-order the album via Bandcamp!
