Dante Jones and Drew Love, aka the Los Angeles duo THEY., are renowned for their unorthodox yet glorified mix of R&B, alt-rock and hip hop are back.

Cultishly pursuing their own unrestrained musical vision, the atmospheric duo continuously deliver electrifying genre blends, injecting their love for rock into contemporary, unique sounds. Recently earning the opening slot on Bryson Tiller’s Trapsoul tour, they’ve also been placed on beatmaker duties for the likes of Chris Brown and Lady Gaga.
THEY. will be returning all guns blazing for their new project ‘The Fireside’ EP dropping on 6th November, the follow up to their debut album ‘Nu Religion: HYENA’.

Six tracks of perfectly crafted R&B records takes things up another notch giving a glimpse into the evolution of their signature moody instrumentals alongside an array of bouncier and buoyant tracks – its unlike anything we’ve heard from the duo before.
