Drunk Gods, Sway and Reptilians from Andromeda…
Playing catch up with blog posts with few recent releases that deserve your attention.
Drunk Gods officially launched their new single tonight in Glasgow’s 13th Note.
The double AA single is available on CD at gigs and from the band members, but will also available to download from the 4th of December
See my review of the blistering new single(s) on louderthanwar website.
If you haven’t got their debut album – my first question is why? – but its not too late, you can download it from bandcamp or iTunes
To Be a Man – new single
Sway have recently come to my attention and are a distinctive melodic guitar driven 4 piece from Paisley. New track “To Be a Man” is a sumptuous slab of indie/power pop reminiscent of melodic 90s guitar bands Into Paradise/Whipping Boy/Power of Dreams.
They are due to headline King Tuts in January and having sought out some of their previous tracks, they surely have a bright future.
Reptilians from Andromeda
I don’t know what the Istanbul music scene is like, but it is good to see that garage rock/punk is popular and alive in other climes.
Reptilians from Andromeda have recently released a new video for song “Burning Inside” from forthcoming self-titled album.
They are by no means a new band having released several EPs since 2013 (check out their bandcamp site for some cracking tracks)
Their forthcoming album will have 10 tracks written and recorded by the band and mixed and mastered by The Monos frontman Fran Ashcroft. It will be available to download from their bandcamp page.
The bands sleazy goth-like garage sound is supplemented by a female vocal not dissimilar to Distillers frontwoman Brody Dalle.
