The Devil Wears Prada are always open to push the limits of what their band is capable of, be that within their own music or in collaborations with others. And their latest experiment finds them delving into the world of EDM in a truly electric way.
They have teamed up with dubstep heavyweights Excision and Wooli for “Reasons”, a dramatic, decadent and deep piece of atmospheric heaven. Blending the intense tension of modern-day TDWP, specifically their recent album Color Decay, with flickers of neon-stained colour, all building up to a drop that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, it’s an incredible piece of innovation and world-building.
The band had this to say about it:
“When Excision and Wooli approached us about working together on a song, we were so stoked for the opportunity to dive into uncharted territory for The Devil Wears Prada. It was fun injecting the lyrical and musical flavors from [the 2022 album] Color Decay onto an EDM track, and the emotional and aggressive nature of our sound fit perfectly with their mastery of modern bass music.”
Excision added this:
“For this one, we wanted to bring together the heavy bass that our fans love with the raw energy of metal-influenced vocals. It was awesome working with Wooli and The Devil Wears Prada on this cross-genre collab.”
And Wooli concluded with this:
“Excision and I originally started this a while ago and knew we needed a band like The Devil Wears Prada on it. This was my first time working with a band and I am extremely pleased with how this came along. Working with The Devil Wears Prada was an incredible experience. They are insanely talented writers and artists. I’m super excited for this one to come out!”
TDWP just released a deluxe version of Color Decay, featuring a whole plethora of new tracks and bonuses. One of those bonuses is “Reaching”, which sounds like this:
