As one of Australia’s finest songwriters, we’ve become accustomed to Thomas Rawle dropping raw emotional pieces for years, but as DRELLER it’s safe to say he’s upped the ante in a big way. Debuting the project a few years ago, he showcased how his ballads could translate in an electronic sphere – and ‘Shape of Love’ takes this soundscape into a complete space-aged operatic world. This sprawling anthem whirls in futuristic distortion and psychedelia, maybe this is like a new-aged Queen? (is that too far to say?) Regardless, strap yourself and feel embrace the love of DRELLER.
‘Shape of Love’ is out now.
