OKP Premiere: The`ve Redefines The Chicago Sound w/ Rippling, Surreal New Single "Visions"

The`ve is a duo comprised Chicago-by-way-of-Houston instrumentalist Sam Trump and dug, both seasoned creatives that have put in a heap of work with local soul outfit Sidewalk Chalk over the years. Today we have the pleasure of introducing their collaborative debut as a dynamic and wholly unique tandem of crafters of electrically-tinged r&b heads on a mission to bend minds and catch ears with hypnotic melodies and dissonant compositions. Their debut offering “Visions” pairs the dark, disjointed rumble of Flying Lotus-styled beat-making with a more feathery, ballad-like approach, finding Trump’s airy croon gliding and sliding all over a rippling piano lead and a buoyant back-beat. With “Visions,” the duo seeks to redefine the sound of a city that keeps proving that it’s as fertile a ground for musicianship as there is in the states or abroad, and to be frank, The`ve may just be the Windy City’s next great offering. Watch the surreal, kaleidoscopic video for The`ve’s dreamy debut single “Visions” below and grab a copy of the track on their Bandcamp today. Hold tight for their A Dream Occurred EP and all of the supporting sounds and sights in the weeks ahead as we creep up on its September release.
