Introducing : DRFTR & Miyu Ukiyo
DRFTR is an artist and music producer who is not afraid to experiment. The single ” Lucky ” is a collaboration with a Japanese model Miyu Ukiyo. The song a merge between the Eastern and Western cultures.

With this being said, the English verse fits in quite well creating harmony and contrast. Last but not least, DRFTR & Miyu did a outstanding job performing as duet! This song is definitely something that’s never been done before and we look forward to hearing more.

Spinning a web of confessional lyrics, distorted guitar lines, and anthemic percussion, “Faded Love” is an instantly catchy indie-pop gem. Cade’s warm baritone vocals croon lyrics about the risks and rewards of rekindling an old flame. He adds, “just like how trends come back in style all the time and the world feels like it’s a little on edge, I think love does a similar thing sometimes. When an old love is rekindled it may be the best thing that ever happened to you… or it burns you worse the second time. You have to decide if that’s a risk you’re willing to take.”
