This New Duo Out of L.A. Just Got a Major Co-Sign By Ebro

Get to know THEY.

Published October 14, 2015

Earlier this week on Ebro’s block for Apple Music’s Beats 1, the voice of New York shared insider news on a new duo he’s been feeling lately.

“When we say THEY., we mean ‘them’,” he said jokingly. But in all seriousness, he's excited about them.

THEY. are two producer-songwriters who formed a group together after connecting through mutual goals in music. Drew and Dante wanted to create a sound that’s boundary pushing. Influenced by a wide range of names (Taking Back Sunday, Kurt Cobain, Babyface and New Edition), the pair decided to make a group off the strength that they write music in a similar fashion.

THEY. just released their debut EP, Nu Religion, which you can stream below. Ebro premiered two songs—“Motley Crue” and “Bad Habits”—on Beats 1 that are a refreshing mix of pop, hip hop and R&B. The EP is the first installment of a three-part EP releasing soon.

THEY. are the third signing to a new label based in L.A. called Mind of a Genius. It’s home to other names to watch out for such as Gallant and ZHU, who the latter recently collaborated with Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Trombone Shorty for “Hold Up.”
