R&B duo THEY. is releasing its debut album Nu Religion: Hyena this Friday. Their explosive single “U-RITE” is an early contender for Music Video of the Year. Today, they released a new track called “Silence” on Julie Adenuga’s Beats 1 show, and it cuts a rather different jib than “U-RITE.” “Silence” is an inward-facing meditation on the post-coitus moment that feels like a solitary candle flickering. Right now, no one integrates rock instrumentation into R&B so effortlessly as THEY.
Lately we’ve been looking for the silence
You know how it is, you know the way it goes
This is what it feels like to be honest
Don’t act you like you ain’t ever been here before
