Erika de Casier shares second 4AD single, 'Drama'

The R&B/pop producer and vocalist has joined the 4AD fold

Copenhagen songwriter-producer Erika de Casier has unveiled her second single for 4AD, ‘Drama’.

With its skippy beats and gentle guitar plucks, the self-produced track recalls late ’90s R&B and 2-step, with Erika’s voice drawing comparisons with Sade.

Directed and edited by Erika herself, the video comes hot on the heels of anti-romance, period drama-inspired visual for ‘No Butterflies, No Nothing‘. It features an alter ego of Erika’s named Bianka.

Of the video, she said: “I wanted to create a sort of evil twin or alter ego of myself because you’re not entirely yourself when you’re in the violence of your own emotions.”
