Lower Dens Share New Song + Video “I Drive”

Four years since their critically acclaimed album, Escape From Evil, Lower Dens recently announced their newest creation — The Competition — which will be released on Ribbon Music on September 6, 2019.  Today, Lower Dens are happy to share the video for the second single from the album, “I Drive,” directed by Jason Nocito, featuring choreography by Veleda Roehl, and dancers Stephannie Henriquez & Steven Jeltsch. “I Drive” follows on the heels – in both sequence and theme – of the album’s lead single — “Young Republicans,” about a certain sect of society’s elite. On “I Drive,” Jana Hunter sings inquisitively “We had streets. But now there’s just police.  I drive at night.” Click HERE to listen, or HERE to watch the video.

On “I Drive”, Hunter says, “Like a lot of queer and trans people, I’ve learned that real family is made, and it isn’t necessarily blood. Even my blood relatives, we work for that familial connection and trust. This song is about leaving behind obligations to people who don’t love or care about you, being with and about people who do. It’s a feeling so strong it’s driving me. That’s the driving I’m doing.”
