Pendulum have returned with “Driver” and “Nothing For Free,” their first original music in ten years.
The Australian drum ’n’ bass group’s last album was Immersion, released in 2010. Two years later, they embarked on a hiatus, only reuniting at the 2016 Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida.
As members Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen told NME, the high-octane “Driver” was intended as a set-opener at a live concert, while “Nothing For Free” has a greater emphasis on lyrical concept.
Pendulum plan to follow up the two tracks with an EP, which “sounds pretty different,” and maybe some material as part of the side project Knife Party. “It’s pretty open right now,” Swire told NME, “which is one of the benefits of the pandemic.”
