New Music: "Rather Die (demo)" by THEY.Danielle Cheesman

Rae Sremmurd may be the Black Beatles, but THEY. is paying tribute to another set of rockers, Nirvana. Reworking the band's 1991 single "Polly," the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter duo is offering up the kind of guitar&B that Raury and James Fauntleroy before them haven't shied away from. The riff-ridden beat seeps slowly until the closer's skittering percussion as the lyrics detail a no-regrets lifestyle: "I'd rather die / Than wonder why I never tried / I wanna dive into the fire / Been waiting to feel like I'm alive."
