For a young band like RDGLDGRN, there’s no better way to drum up support than to have Dave Grohl on your side.

The D.C. group (whose name is pronounced Red-Gold-Green) caught a lot of people’s attention with their recent single “I Love Lamp,” which features the legendary Grohl on drums. As it happens, the trio (consisting of guitarist Red, bassist Gold, and singer Green) wound up getting Grohl to drum on their entire debut EP — and you can hear the whole thing exclusively here.

Recorded in L.A.’s former Sound City Studios (the subject of a recent documentary by, yes, Dave Grohl), the self-titled EP — which hits streets tomorrow — aims to “merge the type of rock and hip-hop we love with DC go-go rhythms,” says Green.

“They all started in a little room in our Mother’s basement,” he continues. “Those ideas grew into songs that we later collaborated on with Dave and Pharrell [Williams, who co-produced “Doing the Most”]. Both of them are from Virginia and they caught on to the sound right away they saw what we were trying do, which amazed us.”
