LA-based alt-R&B duo THEY. share their explosive new single “Comfortable” featuring Fana Hues and captivating companion video. The track epitomizes their undeniable ability to thrill with insatiable music that is both soul-baring and deeply unbound. Featuring a tantalizing cameo from Fana, the visual continues the chilling journey of seduction set forth on “Blü Moon” and is beautifully lined with nostalgia and the film noir style that has long inspired the duo. The single follows the duo’s two-year hiatus and a departure from the major label system – a decision made to preserve their artistry integrity – and ultimately embodies a new era for the duo personally and sonically.
With over 700 million global streams, 2.6M+ Shazams, large critical acclaim and having shaped some of today’s biggest records, THEY. have firmly positioned themselves as one of R&B’s most essential groups through their groundbreaking take on R&B. Growing up feeling like outsiders, producer and songwriter Dante Jones and singer Drew Love sought comfort in artists such as Nirvana, Tame Impala, Taking Back Sunday and Vampire Weekend along with E-40, Slim Thug, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and the R&B staples of their day. The duo first met in 2014 and launched THEY. to reimagine alt-R&B and build belonging for themselves and others who’ve felt like they didn’t quite fit in. The duo merged their eclectic tastes ranging from grunge, hip-hop, R&B, and ’90s new jack swing, resulting in an explosive sound that catapulted them to stardom.
Their breakout Nü Religion project amassed millions of streams and large critical acclaim, and it also captured the attention of artists such as Timbaland and Bryson Tiller. Soon after, Tiller invited the duo to open on his Trapsoul Tour in 2016 and they have also toured with PARTYNEXTDOOR and Jeremih. The duo further cemented themselves outside of the pack through their dynamic projects, Fireside EP and The Amanda Tape, which saw thrilling collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign, Tinashe, Jeremih, Wale, Juice J, Jessie Reyez and Gallant.
Additionally, the duo have individually contributed to work for some of music’s heavy hitters such as Rihanna, BTS, Kacey Musgraves, FKA twigs, Jeremih, John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Will.i.am + many others.
More to come from the duo soon.
