Other / Dan Lawrence

Sorry, but whether you like it or not Valentine’s Day is almost here. Regardless if your heart is bursting or breaking leading up to the gushy lovefest, Dwen has offered a gift that everyone can enjoy. Today, we’re premiering the trio’s new single “Tr Pp n” and it’s a mouthful of savory electro-R&B goodness. In an email to Highsnobiety, the group explained how the lyrics are “our take on something universally and numerously explored through the lovelorn sentiment of 90s R&B.”

Dwen adds, “Genre is redundant these days, its more about just trying to make something, anything, and seeing how if anything it makes people feel.”

The East London-based group’s name is borrowed from the term “douen,” a mythological creature from Trinidad and Tobago folklore believed to be the lost souls of unbaptized children, so their haunting tunes have a mystical quality to them as the spiraling beats pound into your ears and transport your mind elsewhere. Stream the full single right here.
