Single Premiere: DRI HIEV - Of One
Calgary’s DRI HIEV are a team favourite at the Cups N Cakes Network. Their last release was an EP called DRIP that was on our list of the Best EPs of 2017. Yesterday, on episode 135 of the Cups N Cakes Radio Show, we were given the honour of premiering the second single from DRI HIEV’s forthcoming debut full length. The album is self titled and will be independently released on May 24th. Regarding the content, front-person CC states:
“Lyrically, the album is written about me coming to terms with my gender identity and navigating through my daily life knowing that I've never truly been male.”
The song we are premiering is called “Of One” and is meant as an accompaniment to the first single, “Seven Of”. Following the album’s theme, these songs were written about CC coming to terms with their gender identity. Together the songs use the story of Seven of Nine from Star Trek Voyager to tell their story.
