Rising duo DRAMA are back with their brand new massive EP “Don’t Wait Up

DRAMA release their highly anticipated EP Don’t Wait Up, the pair’s newest compilation of music since their Dance Without Me album in 2020.

The new EP ‘Don’t Wait Up’ sees DRAMA channel the wide range of influences, that is seeing them reshape the modern love song. The EP traverses everything from Chicago house, lovesick saxophones, strutting guitars, soft piano chords, luscious soundscapes, and more.

At the start of the quarantine during the intense isolation of 2020, DRAMA began working on the new EP as a point of reflection and release from loneliness. While fans are familiar with DRAMA’s broody, melancholic approach to music, the duo’s sonic exploration digs deeper and darker on Don’t Wait Up.

After six years of working together, the duo have refined their singular style of bittersweet messages for the dance floor.

DRAMA’s shares about the EP, “A lot of what we felt during this time was challenging and the only way to make it count was to express ourselves. We wanted to create lush and heartbreak on every record, so you felt our time.

The title ‘Don’t Wait Up’ was originally inspired by a track on the EP, “Hit My Line,” and the idea of releasing toxicity both from a relationship and from within yourself. ‘Don’t Wait Up’ is vulnerable in that it speaks to the insecurity and destabilization that comes with an imbalanced relationship, but it also is positive as it points to the transformation toward self-love that can come as a result.

Lyrically, this collection of songs is very confident with a certain “put my foot down” energy. It’s about growth, taking back control, telling that someone to not wait up, to not waste their breath, and finally realizing you deserve to love and be loved.”
