Any band who loves to make sweaty noise with an aim to make us sing and laugh is worth checking out.
Bristol-based punk three-piece DROOGS set out to do just that, and listening to latest single 'Swing' they have achieved it. Released on 25th December 2020 this a crazy, white knuckle ride reminiscent of The Damned or The Clash. “Swing” is a fearsome, breathless 4 and a half minutes of ferocious raw guitars and drums. It actually describes the life of an introverted and vulnerable teenager, but the subject matter belies the music which is a relentless assault on the senses. It blasts off like a rocket at the start, and does not stop until it hits the final note.
Previous tracks 'Make You Laugh' and 'Method Actors' are in the same vein and this wild punk immediately makes the floor shudder with the power of the music.
DROOGS debut EP was recorded in November 2019 and is set for release in 2021. I can’t wait for some more sweaty noise…..
