Dragged Up – Missing Person (single review)

Fans of last year’s Hex Domestic EP will be pleased to know that Dragged Up’s new single, ‘Missing Person’ often sounds like something Black Francis might have concocted. The riffs are cagey, the melodies mysterious, and the accompanying black-and-white music video is weird and noirish.

The lyrics are intriguing too – confronting a person who’s become a facsimile of themselves – and the laid-back repetition of ‘a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy’ is a nonchalant earworm.

‘Missing Person’ is out on 2nd February via Rare Vitamin Records
