Album cover art for What We Drew by YaejiAlthough it’s hard not to see everything as a response to our current pandemic predicament, there’s certainly a timeliness to Yaeji’s new mixtape.

Emphasising the difficulty of domesticity and self-care, it fits effortlessly into the popular rhetoric of celebrating doing whatever you can in unprecedented times. Coming off the global success of the NYC-via-Seoul producer’s boisterous party anthem raingurl, that makes What We Drew 우리가 그려왔던 a decidedly inward turn, and it extends to the music as well: swaddled in itchy electronic fuzz, insectoid clicking, paranoiac whispers and echoes, it describes a particularly interior universe, closely studied and indelibly felt.

What We Drew 우리가 그려왔던 by Yaeji is out July 17 via XL/Remote Control.
