TUNE Nicol & Elliott - Dragging Me Down
Signifying a fidelity to the dark subject matter in the Southern Gothic tradition of previous releases, "Dragging Me Down" is characterised by the pair's tense vocal harmonies and Rachel's driven yet emotive solos.
Featuring Andy Lucas (Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire/Blue Rose Code) on piano and Ross D. Barron (Katee Kross) on electric guitar, "Dragging Me Down" was recorded and mixed at Anchor Lane Studio in Glasgow by Luigi Pasquini and mastered by Sam Smith at Green Door Studio, Glasgow. The single was self-produced by Nicol & Elliott.
The digital single release will also be supported by the release of an animated music video produced by New York City based visual artist Gabriela Sibilska on at 5pm on Friday 30th October 2020 via the band's Facebook page.
