It's hard not to like THEY., the duo that has carved out a completely original rock-infused R&B aesthetic over the course of five songs. This morning they released their sixth song, a flip of Nirvana's "Polly" called "Rather Die." Here's what THEY. had to say about the track:
"I’ve always felt that it’s important for an artist to pay tribute to what first inspired you. We were vibing out on guitar and started playing "Polly.' Its just one of those riffs that hits you from the first moment you hear it. Before we knew it, we have our own song to it. Alll the business people begged us to change it, but we couldn’t bring ourselves to change it. We did what was best for the song and our fans just let it be what it was intended to be, two guys vibing to one of their favorite riffs of all time."
Listen to "Rather Die" and read THEY.'s HNHH interview.
Am I the only one under the Sun who's had enough
And wants to run but never does?
Sick from who I've become
And now my freedom seems to be the sweetest one
I'd die just to get a little taste
See it from the look on my face
But you ain't ever been in my place
