Playthrough: “Dark Water” from Juliet Ruin!
The next chapter of Juliet Ruin will come at some point in 2021 with a new EP entitled “Dark Water” to follow 2019’s “Old Stardust, Love and Chaos”, a record which opened many doors including opening for a couple of dates on a tour run which saw Jinjer, The Browning and Sumo Cyco in Canada. The title track of that new EP is out now and so they’ve allowed drummer Jesse Kyle Bauman out of the basement to record a drum playthrough video for the track.
Bauman adds: “For our new single Dark Water, we had discussed showcasing a significantly harder side we haven’t explored yet. With that in mind, I had a vision for the drums the second that I heard that opening guitar riff. Heavy, hard hitting and driving. Dark Water didn’t require 300bpm blast beats or mind bending polyrhythms, the song screamed simplicity with flair. From the funky hit hats, to the heavy double kick, I feel like the drums in Dark Water are a perfect blend of KISS (keep it simple, stupid) and Djent“
