With reverb soaked snares, pulsing drums, glistening analogue synths, punk guitar melodies and Spiteri’s baritone vocals matching McAuliffe’s powerful tenor voice. DROVES create music that draws listeners in with anthemic pop hooks that speak to the future of humanity and embrace them with dark imagery of a post-apocalyptic cult.
DROVES debuted their first live performance at last year’s Yours and Owls Festival with acts like Methyl Ethel, Liars and Alison Wonderland. triple j has thrown their support behind the quintet, with previous singles, 'Time' and 'Bloodline', which came from an EP of the same name, both scoring plays on the station. Key tastemakers including Pilerats, Laundry Echo, AAA Backstage and FBi Radio.
Throw in a month of rotation on beloved late-night video program, Rage, a slot on the Farmer & The Owl Festival and supporting some big names on the scene including RAAVE TAPES, San Mei, Bakers Eddy, Johnny Hunter and more, it's safe to say DROVES have garnered plenty of momentum behind them.
About this track...
Recorded with Cody Munro Moore's portable, makeshift studio under a tram station in Glebe, the song cuts through an underlying tension with resplendent guitars and an unshakeable sense of urgency coursing throughout.
