With the exception of iconic industry shifters who made it look easy like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, or dare I say, even Limp Bizkit, the mashup genre of rap-rock can be a treacherous territory to navigate. That said, Austin four-piece The Dragon Berries seems to have hit a stride in the hip-hop-meets-alt-rock field, beginning with 2019’s “We Got the Funk”.
The Dragon Berries have spent the pandemic writing a new batch of tracks, including a real winner recorded at The Bubble with Chris “Frenchie” Smith that just premiered this morning. Far from an isolated example of The Dragon Berries’ talent, “Island” encompasses the group’s cross-genre escapism all under four minutes, and is officially available to provide respite whenever you need!
