October Drift have announced their second single, You Are You Are, due out on May 18th.
Despite the single only being their second, the four-piece have managed to cause quite a stir with most of their tour tickets being sold through word of mouth alone and their debut doing a lot of the talking - resulting in the tour selling out. Now, You Are You Are, is ready to pick things up with a larger sound.
Taking influence from psychedelic movements, lo-fi riffs and distorted vocals, their knowledge and inspiration from others has all come together in a track which draws comparisons to Radiohead, Joy Division and so many more influential musicians. Their sound is almost industrial in this with ear-pricking moments that urge you to pay attention.
You Are You Are is available through self-release on May 18th and is also available for pre-order here, where you receive handmade CD packs. The band are also going on tour around the release of the single and you can catch them on the following dates:
6th - The Cavern, Exeter
7th - Oporto, Leeds
8th - Plug, Sheffield
22nd - Dot 2 Dot Festival, Manchester
23rd - Dot 2 Dot Festival, Bristol
27th - The Old Blue Last, London
