Drugdealer Collaborate With Kate Bollinger On New Single ‘Pictures Of You’
Speaking about the track, Collins says “I was on the East Coast visiting my parents when my publisher suggested a possible writing session with Kate. When I got there, we became friends really quickly and ended up writing this song at Spacebomb Studios. The whole experience was really spur of the moment and organic.”
Bollinger adds: “Michael and I wrote this song last summer on a day when he was stopping through Virginia. We stayed up late drinking with my roommate and went to my friend’s studio the next day to make some music together. I went upstairs and took a nap and in the meantime, while I was sleeping, he had written the music and melody to ‘Pictures of You’.

CLUNK Zine 004
Our final zine of 2022 has arrived!
It’s been a wild ride and truthfully we never thought we would get this far, thank you all so much for your continued support and love. We always say this but you truly do not know how much it means to us.
With Zine 004 we go out with a real bang and have packed it with as much juicy content as possible. We’ve got interviews with Mandrake Handshake, Lauran Hibberd, DEADLETTER, Swim Deep, Jaws The Shark, and more!
In addition to this, we have features such as Photographer Highlight with Rose Alice Wilson, Cheers To Opus Kink, and more!
This issue will very much be a visual-heavy one due to our festival coverage, which features photography from Boardmasters, Leopallooza, and TRUCK Festival.
As always there will be exclusive artwork from Red Moon Design.
AND SO MUCH MORE!
“When I woke up, we wrote the lyrics and finished the song together. I’ve always approached lyrics in isolation and writing this song showed me a whole other way of making music with someone else. A month after becoming friends with Michael, I visited him in Los Angeles for the first time and decided I wanted to live there, so it feels special having this song come out a month after my move to Los Angeles, a year after we wrote it.”
On listening to the track, you can tell that the collaboration is genuine, and that the pair have an excess of musical chemistry that shines through. Bollinger’s vocals perfectly fit the mellow, laidback instrumental of the song, with its intricate guitar work and steady drums.
‘Pictures of You’ is the final track to be released in advance of Drugdealer‘s forthcoming album ‘Hiding In Plain Sight’, which will be released on October 28th 2022 via Mexican Summer. It follows their last full-length album, ‘Raw Honey’.
