#147: Drenge - Self-Titled



Infectious Music (19 August)


Words: Dave Beech

Despite their name being banded around the pages of both the music and national press, Drenge are a band who seem oblivious to the hype that surrounds them. Even when Labour MP Tom Watson name dropped and recommended them in his resignation letter to Ed Milliband, their reaction was nothing short of nonchalant. I'm not totally overjoyed that it happened but at the same time I don't really care.” brothers Eoin and Rory Loveless proclaimed upon hearing the news. Thankfully the air of nonchalance they exude doesn't bleed in to their music and following on from the success of singles such as 'Backwaters' and 'Face Like A Skull' the band are now set to unleash their self-titled full-length d├ębut upon the masses.
