Stream Dog Blood’s new single, ‘Turn Off The Lights’
Supergroups are a tough concept to nail. More often than not, the sum is far less than the whole of its parts, and the dueling influences of the outfit’s two (or more) megastars falls short of its members’ solo endeavors.
Such is not the case for Dog Blood, nor has it ever been. Skrillex and Boys Noize’s abilities to measure up to their solo catalogues in tandem is rooted partly in their skilled production approach, and more so in their stylistic compatibility. Most of all, however, it’s the result of their decision not to over-exert the project. Dog Blood releases are few and far between, but when they arrive, they inevitably leave an inimitable impact.
Today, March 29, the iconic pair has released their first new single in more than five years. “Turn Off The Lights” picks up just where Skrillex and Boys Noize left off in 2013; detuned synth-work, Ragga-esque vocals, and garage-inspired beats pervade Dog Blood’s long-awaited return to the studio.
While the new single is a bit less heavy than most of their earlier work, it undeniably leaves us yearning for more.
